Praise for Jennifer Chiaverini and the Elm Creek Quilts series "Chiaverini's themes of love, loss, and healing will resonate with many, and her characters' stories are inspiring." --"Publishers Weekly" "Jennifer Chiaverini has made quite a name for herself with her bestselling Elm Creek Quilts series. From the Civil War to the Roaring Twenties to contemporary settings, these novels have offered suspense, romance, and, at times, in-depth looks into the social, political, and cultural differences that helped shape a nation." --"BookPage" "Chiaverini excels at weaving stories and at character development. We can relate to the residents of Elm Creek Valley because they remind us of folks we know--a cousin, an aunt, or a grandmother." --"Standard-Examiner" (Utah) "Jennifer Chiaverini's strength is not only writing strong female characters, but also placing them in interesting lives and times." --"New York Journal of Books"
