From Booklist
Elm Creek Quilt Camp is firmly at the center of her latest novel in the series, though Chiaverini broadens the geography and characters. An ad for an instructor at the camp attracts candidates from near and far, all offering a look at different perspectives on what quilting means in their lives. Maggie, who works at a convalescent home, stumbled into quilting when she found one at a garage sale and traced its history; Russell, who completed the cancer quilt begun by his wife before she succumbed to that disease, brings an abstract aesthetic--and a male perspective--to the craft; Anna, who is as creative a chef as a quilter, lacks the confidence to stand up for herself in a failing relationship; and Gretchen is a veteran quilter who has struggled with humble beginnings, but her abiding love for the craft has inspired her to make of it a life and a business. All pass through Elm Creek Quilt Camp as the women who run and love the camp deliberate the meaning of the art form.

I have read all of Jennifers books. Love them all. I love all the characters and learning about the Underground Railroad etc. These people are like your family and learning to quilt besides. If your a quilter you'll love this even more. If you want to read some good books start at the beginning and read them all.

Jennifer Chiaverini does not disappoint with book #9 in the Elm Creek Quilts series. Two positions are open at Elm Creek Manor and applicants from all corners of the country come in to interview! Great character development in the applicant's background--their lives will have you in tears and laughter. I often wish I could find my own Elm Creek Quilters to have such wonderful friends, quilting skills, life challenges--all entwined in beautiful surroundings that are rich in history.

Chiaverini runs a nice variation on her usual plotline, as quilters from various walks of life and personal situations vie for a teaching space at Elm Creek Camp.

The characters in this book are easy to know and to identify with. You will find yourself hoping that certain of those interviewed will be the ones chosen as the new staf members.

"When Elm Creek Quilts announces openings for two new teachers, quilters everywhere are vying to land the prestigious post. The impending departure of two founding members mean untold changes for the Elm Street Quilters. As they begin the interview process, a single question emerges: Who can possibly take the place of the beloved colleagues and friends?
'We must evaluate all of the applicants' qualities,' advises Master Quilter Sylvia Compson. 'Our choice will say as much about us as it says about who we decide to hire.' Who merits a place among the circle of quilters? Will it be Maggie, whose love of history shines through all her projects; Anna, whose food-themed quilts are wonderfully innovative; Russ, the male quilter with a completely original style; Karen, a novice teacher whose gifts for language compliment her deep understanding of the quilter's mission; or Gretchen, the soulful veteran whose craft is inspired by quilting tradition?"
