Product Description

Review

Praise for Jennifer Chiaverini and the Elm Creek Quilts series "Chiaverini's themes of love, loss, and healing will resonate with many, and her characters' stories are inspiring." --"Publishers Weekly" "Jennifer Chiaverini has made quite a name for herself with her bestselling Elm Creek Quilts series. From the Civil War to the Roaring Twenties to contemporary settings, these novels have offered suspense, romance, and, at times, in-depth looks into the social, political, and cultural differences that helped shape a nation." --"BookPage" "Chiaverini excels at weaving stories and at character development. We can relate to the residents of Elm Creek Valley because they remind us of folks we know--a cousin, an aunt, or a grandmother." --"Standard-Examiner" (Utah) "Jennifer Chiaverini's strength is not only writing strong female characters, but also placing them in interesting lives and times." --"New York Journal of Books" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Anglers Rest on 8 Dec. 2012
Format: Hardcover
Continuing the wonderful Elm Creek series. I had been eagerly awaiting the book's publication when I had the chance to review via NetGalley. My recently ordered hardback edition arrived a few weeks ago and now joins the rest of the series on my bookshelf.

In this latest instalment, we are in the week following Thanksgiving. This week is know at Elm Creek as Quilt Giving which is an opportunity to attend a retreat and quilt. At the end of the week the quilters donate their accomplishments to local charities.

We meet the regular Elm Creek Quilters - Matt and Sarah and their toddler twins, Sylvia and Gretchen. We also meet the quilters attending the retreat - Jocelyn, mother of two children and a widow, Mona & Linnea, who are sisters, Michaela a student with her leg in plaster cast, Karen an employee of a quilt shop who had previously applied and been rejected to work at Elm Creek and Pauline a rather gifted quilter and a member of a rather prestigious quilting bee.

The story unfolds with a customary meal and the allocation of a Giving Journal, where the attendees are asked to record what they are thankful for and what they give to others (as well as receive). Each of the women, apart from the sisters are strangers and gradually they become immersed within the confines of the retreat and start to let down their personal barriers and each begins to share her story.

As each one shares and listens we start to see the foundations of friendships form and the love they each have for their families and their quilting.

I was not disappointed with the latest instalment and I look forward to the next visit to Elm Creek.

As an avid quilter and patchworker I love these books, just wish there was a real Elm Creek Manor.!! It's great to hear how the ladies are progressing in the town of Waterford and up at the Manor. There's always something going on and this book does not disappoint. We follow the life and times of one of the founding members at the Manor, after the break down of her marriage and the loss of her beloved "Grandma's Attic" Bonnie is unsure where to go next. When she receives on invitation to visit Hawaii could this be the answer to her prayers? read the book to find put more.

I am a great fan of Jennifer Chiaverini so, needless, to say I loved the book. Finished it in about 6 days in sppite of trying to ration myself to a chapter a day.

I'm still trawling through getting the fabric quantities and instructions for the Givin Quilt which I'd love to make for my little Granddaughter.

I love the Elm Creek Quilters books. However this one was somewhat 'preachy.' Although I agreed with the sentiments portrayed, I didn't need to have it brought home to me. Other than than that it was another great book from the series.

Although much of this book features on characters other than the actual ETQ regulars I still found it interesting and absorbing and was sorry when it ended
