My rating for The Mapmaker’s Children – 3
The Mapmakers Children by Sarah McCoy is told from the perspective of Sarah Brown and that of Eden Anderson. Sarah is the daughter of John Brown who can draw coded maps to help slaves escape to Canada and help in her father’s abolitionist cause. Eden Anderson just moved to a house in West Virginia, trying to have a child with her husband, Jack while slowly becoming part of the community.
I liked the stories of the women and the found the characters to be affable and smart. The author can certainly write and engaging story and I found myself to be sympathetic to the storyline.
I thought the story to be uneven, the parts which were about Sarah Brown were very interesting, the parts with Eden Andersen were not as engaging and, quite frankly, I found the lady to be overly dramatic. I don’t like people who create drama in their heads in real life or fiction.
