Mazie Hartford’s great-grandmother gives her a gift. A quilt she calls the Moses Quilt. Knowing her time on earth is short, her great-grandmother tells Mazie the story behind the quilt. The Moses Quilt is named after Harriet Tubman and it tells her story. Can what Mazie learns from the quilt – and the story – help her understand her reluctance to marry the man she loves?
I love quilts and history, so there is a lot of this book that I enjoyed, but I have to admit that I didn’t understand the ending. I may be thicker than a post (a very legitimate possibility) but I just didn’t get it. Loved the characters, loved Mimi’s story about the quilt, but did not comprehend how it influenced the ending at all. I’m not going to post a spoiler, but if you’ve read it and you understand it … feel free to clue me in!
