The Mapmaker's Children by Sarah McCoy

This book was an utter delight for a history lover, diving into the life of Sarah Brown the daughter of the infamous John Brown. Sarah is a very talented artist who is able to put her talents to work for the underground railroad by drawing maps. Sarah begins to boldly embrace her calling as a skilled mapmaker as the more traditional role of being a Mother is to be denied of her. In modern time Eden finds a doll in the root cellar that will unlock some mystery and intrigue.
This book was skillfully written and I loved how the author seamlessly wove together the past and the present. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
