I really enjoyed this story of four very different women who become friends at quilting camp. The book intertwines each woman's story from the time they leave camp to the following year. Well written and enjoyable!

This book had almost nothing about the Elm Creek Quilters in it other than that the characters she brings out meet at the quilt camp. The stories of the new characters were somewhat interesting, Julia, Vinnie, Grace, Megan and Donna and by the end of the book I felt more involved in their lives but I would have preferred to have more of the original characters. It was ok

As with the first two books in this series this one did not disappoint me. I am really enjoying this series. To see each of the characters come to life as I read about them and to hear about their trials and problems makes me want to keep on reading and find out how they resolve the problems. These books are very well written. Each time I pick one of them up I find that I have trouble putting it down to do housework or even to go to sleep at night. I am not a quilter although I would some day like to learn how to quilt this series is still a very good set of books to read.

Chiaverini falls back on her basic formula here -- a group of women with various career, family, and romantic problems, brought together by a love of quilting, who help each other get through to happily-ever-after. This group includes an aging film actress and a prominent quilt designer who's lost her mojo.

Another delightful weave of stories of women's lives as they meet together at the famous quilter's camp around which Jennifer Chiaverini's novels are cleverly constructed. I just finished this one, and experienced that feeling of sadness that the story is over. But not for long, as Ms. Chiaverini has provided us with many happy tales to make us feel good about ourselves. No violence, no serious conflicts, just life stories that make a good read.
