Book Review - THE MOSES QUILT by Kathi Macas


Every time I read one of Kathi's books, it always lands high in my "wow!" category. The Moses Quilt is right up there with the rest of her "parables with a purpose," as she likes to call her novels.

Mazie Hartford's great-grandmother, Mimi, has a secret and very little time left to reveal it. She asks Mazie to pull a patchwork quilt from her cedar chest. The story she begins to tell first to Mazie and then also to Mazie's amazing friend Edward Clayton about the Moses Quilt will change their lives forever.

Mazie, a white woman, is in love with the well-respected black attorney and he with her, but she has reservations about marrying a black man. Is she prejudiced? She hopes not, but she isn't sure. Why does she have such a problem giving her life without reservation to Edward? He's asked her to marry him several times, and Lord knows he's trying hard not to be impatient.

As the tale unravels about the quilt, Mimi knows she is fast approaching the end of her days on earth. She longs to go to her heavenly home, but it's so important that they know the story of the quilt and Harriet Tubman, the Moses of the slaves during the Civil War. She prays for enough time to finish the tale.

The Moses Quilt will hold you mesmerized until the final page--and I don't know about you, but the answers they find totally caught me by surprise. You can buy  this and other books by Kathi Macias at Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, and Christian Book Distributors. Click on the name of the store you prefer, and it will take you right to the spot where her books are listed. Click on Kathi's name, and it will take you to her website.

  1. Thank you so much for the lovely review, Anne. Blessings to you and your readers/followers! And just as an aside, for those in other countries if you leave a comment and Anne chooses your name, I will give you a digital version of the book if you have a reader (Kindle, Nook, etc.). That's in addition to the paperback Anne is giving away to someone in the country. Shalom, dear friends!

  8. I am a new fan of Kathi's. Last year I read "Red Ink" and have since read "The Freedom Series." I was blessed to have met her in November 2012 at Eagle Eyrie at a Baptist Women's retreat in VA. What a thrill to hear her speak and to get her to autograph two of her books! Winning a copy of The Moses Quilt would be wonderful!!

  15. Hi,

    i'd love to win the book. I'm wondering how Kathi made the transition from writing nonfiction to fiction. Is she still writing nonfiction?

  16. In response to Cathy's question, my heart has always been to write fiction but it was such a tough sell for so long. That has changed now, and I actually get so many contract offers for fiction that I haven't had time to do nonfiction. I do have a couple of nonfiction ideas rolling around that I hope to get to soon.
