“What an amazing woman of faith and an astounding read about the personal sacrifices made to help others be free! And what a strong and personal call, not only to Edward and Mazie but to all of us, to walk out our faith and courage in our everyday lives. After reading this book, you’ll never look at quilts, courage, or Harriet Tubman the same way.”
