Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Mapmaker's Children by Sarah McCoy follows two women - Sarah Brown in the 1850s and Eden Anderson in 2014. Sarah's story is personal and global - the story of slavery, abolition and the time leading up to the Civil War in the United States. Eden's story is about personal sorrow, a house, and a doll. Sarah's story is the more compelling one, but Eden's story feels more “alive.”
