I've read (and own!) all the Elm Creek books. This book follows on from an earlier book that was one of my least favourites so I wasn't particularly excited about it coming out. However, having read it, I really enjoyed it. My only criticism is that there is hardly any quilting in it - a few quilts get a mention and a brief description, but I think they could have been edited out and the story would have still been a good one, whereas with other books in the series the actual process of quilting has been more intrinsic to the plot.

I really enjoyed this book, though I wouldn't call it an 'Elm Creek' novel. It's a spin-off, and picks up where 'The Quilter's Homecoming' finishes. In fact, the first couple of chapters overlap, as we leave the story from Elizabeth's point of view (in The Quilter's Homecoming), and now take up the story from Rosa's point of view. It has no link whatsoever to Elm Creek, and only a very slim link to Elizabeth, who came from Elm Creek.

However, Jennifer Chiaverini is a master at a good story, especially historical ones, and despite this not being an Elm Creek book, and only a passing mention to Quilting, it's still a very good story. It follows the tale of Rosa, Lars & the children as they escape from the abusive John and search for a cure for Ana & Miguel's mysterious illness, which has already claimed the lives of their older brothers & sisters.

They find refuge with the warm and friendly Cacchione family who own a vineyard. But this is late 1920's, early 1930's, so owning a family vineyard in Probition era is not easy. The Cacchione's activities threaten to reveal Roas & Lars' secret. I thought the potrayl of Lars ongoing struggle with alcholism was very realistic. An extremely good story, really enjoyed this book.

Another winner from Jennifer Chaiverini,whilst writing about the modern day trails and tribulations of running a quilt camp(which any quilter would give their right arm to visit) you also get back stories of how today's family has arrived were it is. Very cleverly using previous mentioned characters to broaden the story you get to here a lot of American history without really knowing it. Wonder what the next book is going to be about.
