The Mapmaker’s Children: Book Review

I found the book, “The Mapmaker’s Children,” on the Blogging for Books website. The book is written by Sarah McCoy.

I have never read a book by Ms. McCoy in my entire life. It was in the historical fiction section. I love historical fiction. It cannot be helped.

I love the cover of the book. I think it fits with the storyline of the book.

It was interesting that one of the main characters was based on an actual person, Sarah Brown. We probably never think about the real or fictional experiences of family of John Brown.

The book begins in a modern day setting. The main character, Eden, has just moved to Washington D.C. She discovers an porcelain doll in the cellar. Eden and the neighbor girl, Cleo, are on a mission to find out the history of the doll.

The book alternates between Eden’s story and Sarah Brown’s story. It was really interesting to see how the two stories intertwine.

The book seems to keep the reader engaged throughout the story. It didn’t end the way I had hoped as far as Sarah Brown’s story but since she was a real person, it had to end with the truth. I waited until I finished the book to Google Sarah Brown to see what was real or not.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.

  1. sounds Interesting. Usually there are certain things we come across which may carry amazing stories and histories to be explored with them for e.g for me abandoned homes are always amusing. I make my own stories about them but it would be so wonderful if I could set on a Journey to find the history, places like that hold.
