Featured review: “[T]his story was made for me.

Featured 5- review: “The Mapmaker’s Children is a beautifully written novel driven by heroines who are real in their emotions and their flaws, and McCoy brilliantly pulls Sarah Brown out of the shadows of history and brings her to life in full color. Sarah and Eden are separated by more than a century, but their journeys toward love and family are universal. McCoy is a master storyteller, and The Mapmaker’s Children is destined for my Best of 2015 list!”

Virtual book blog tour.
Featured ☆ review: “The Mapmaker’s Children was one of my favorite books of 2015 and should be included on your summer reading or future book group list… McCoy moves effortlessly from prevent day West Virginia where Eden, a troubled woman, is trying to make a new start in a quirky and appealing community, to one of the most troubled times imaginable, and a heroine who moves from New York to West Virginia to Massachusetts to California in a time where most women stayed within a few miles of where they were born.”

Thursday, June 18 | Book Perfume
Featured review: “I loved everything about this book. Sarah McCoy is a masterful storyteller, creating both historic and modern-day plotlines that are absorbing, exciting and compulsively readable. Every single character—human and canine—leapt straight off of the page and into my heart, and I have the distinct feeling that they’re going to stay there forever.”
