THE MAP QUILT by Lisa Lickel gets LADYBUGGED

This historical mystery time-piece-romance is filled with information about a time in America's past ripe with the inhumanity of mankind rampant at that time...I am of course talking about the time of the 

Underground Railroad. Unimaginable cruelty was allowed to flourish, but thanks to those who took part in the Railroad, unimaginable courage and compassion ALSO showed itself. 

This book starts slow, and at times it wasn't easy figuring out who all the characters are, but soon you are drawn into the multitude of mysteries surrounding the owners of the Map Quilt.

Lisa Lickel has placed a spotlight on the irrational cruelty of slavery, but also the lack of honor the legal system participated in even when they were dealing 

"justice" to FREED Black men and women.

I award THE MAP QUILT 

four stars for the richness it delivers to its readers, and to Ms. Lickel I say

What will you reveal next time around?
