Wakulla Book Review: The Map Quilt by Lisa J. Lickel
The Map Quilt is an attention grabber. From the first page until the last I was thoroughly entertained and mesmerized. This is a book laced with history, politics, mystery, love, hope, and faith. By the end of the book I felt like I was a part of the character’s lives.
From the atrocities of slavery and the perils of escape through the underground railroad to modern corporate espionage, there is never a dull moment. The plot twists and turns at just the right moments to keep the reader guessing until the end.
Bringing up real issues from the past, and tying them together with today’s controversies about “green” energy, the tale is quite realistic. The best part of the story for me is the thread of faith that ties it all together.
I would give this book 4 ½ stars out of 5 – I may have given it a 5 had I read the first book in the series.

I (Lorilyn Roberts) want to personally thank all the men who are reviewing the books written by JOHN 3:16 AUTHORS. I am thankful that we are able to bless them and appreciate the encouragement given to us by their reviews.
Each WEEK (usually on Tuesday), we are posting reviews from
Wakulla Correctional inmates of
John 3:16 books.
Inmates are loving the new books from John 3:16 authors. Chaplain Steve Fox is adding the new books to the prison library in this initiative to "change lives to ensure a safer Florida."
