A historical read!!!

The Mapmakers Children by Sarah McCoy

Two women from very different eras lives interconnect across the generations. Sarah Brown the vibrant and talented daughter of abolitionist John Brown finds her life turned around when she starts to work with the Underground railroad. Watching as her family deals with the loss of her father and brothers, she resolves to continue her fathers work with the help of a friend. Using her artistic talents to provide hidden maps for the fleeing slaves to follow north to freedom.
Eden Anderson is a modern day woman facing some struggles of her own, having not been able to have a child and moving to a new home. The discovery of a old doll head leads her on a search for information about the house she lives in. Sarah and Eden connect across time thru the dolls head and letters that are found connecting to the house.

This book takes us back to a time when war was brewing between the states. It shows a side to the John Brown story that I have never thought about.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for free.
