Second book in the Shenandoah series. This one is about a woman on the run who falls for the minister of the local church. She lives with Helen from the first book in the series. Good read!

Interesting love story. Definitely kept my interest the whole time. I really enjoyed the latin, quilting, and Virginia components. A little predictable, but a good read.

A story of a pastor who welcomes the Hispanic community and meets a woman from what appears to be Mexico, their growing friendship from which develops love, and the mystery behind her. It is a good read.

Lovely story about a minister, his congregation, a mysterious sexton and, of course, quilts. Characters, and even one of the buildings, hold secrets that unfold as the story develops.

I loved this book. The story moves kindof slowly in the beginning but the last half of the book flies by. Great book!

After leaving his previous job as a minister in a rather glitzy church were being seen is more important then doing good, Sam Kinkade has settled into the town of Toms Brook, VA, the same setting as Richards previous book Wedding Ring. With many of the same characters, the author weaves a new story around the church and their new Sexton, Elisa Martinez, a refugee from Guatemala.

Sam and his fellow parishioners have opened up La Casa Amarilla on the grounds of the church to act as an education program for the Hispanic children new to the area. But as the story progresses we see that everyone has a secret, including the pre-Cival War home that houses the school.

With precise storytelling, Emilie Richards unwinds a wonderful addition to her Shenandoah Album series that brings the residents of Toms Brook into our homes and makes the reader a wonderful addition to the close knit community that cares for one another in a way that now seems foreign to most of us.

I really enjoyed "Endless Chain" because it had people from different cultures coming together, even though there were some conflicts in the story. I'm also a quilter and it was fun to have the quilting aspect in the story too. It's a feel good book that was fun to read.

Another lovely book in the quilt series, centering around the minister at Community Church and a lovely, secretive woman who is hired to work as the church sexton. Richard's characters are warm and engaging, and she actually makes me wish I could quilt!

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series! Wedding Ring (1st in series) and Endless Chain (2nd in series) both refer to a quilting pattern. However, quilting is an underlying theme. Richards reveals her characters' many layers - you genuinely care about them. Very good read! Looking forward to the next one.

I really enjoyed this book set in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. If you like realistic characters, a little romance, and some suspense, you're in for a treat.

From the author:
"And wy the title Endless Chain? While I was searching fo inspiration, I looked at this wonderful quilt pattern and saw outstretched arms, an endless chain of humanity reaching out to help, to comfort, to protect.

For centuries, women (and men)have stitched the very fabric of their lives into the quilts they create. I hope you will enjoy all the books of the SHENANDOAH ALBUM series, and the lives of the women and men who walk through them."
