This book will not disappoint any fan of Chiaverini. You have the relationship of father getting married a second time and late in wife and dealing with his children's attitude towards the pending. Of course, you also have quilts in that Sylvia is tracking down her mother's most prized quilts that Sylvia's sister Claudia sold many years before. It is a story filled with love on various levels, hope and anxiety and the cherished relationships between family and friends and the understanding of strangers.
Every book in this series surpasses the previous one -- it just gets better and better. You don't have to be a quilter to enjoy this series, but it will make you curious about all the different quilt patterns! I am not a quilter, but this series of books have prompted me to request books about antique quilts, which has definitely added to my enjoyment of this series of books.
Jennifer has done it again... this book is about Sylvia looking for her mother's heiloom quilts that her older sister sold off. This is also the tale of hers and Andrews engagement will the family accept her?? Another must read book by this author.
Another in the excellent Elm Creek Quilts series. Sylvia travels across the country searching for quilts that may have belonged to her family. As they appear, she learns much about her mother and her ancestors. Excellent series
