I would recommend this audiobook to someone who enjoys the series or who likes stories with solid characters and life lessons.
The only down side is that I wasn't always able to follow the characters from the voices. In earlier books, they were easier to discern with. There are too many characters now that sound the same.
The story lines
I could never decide. I would take them all!
This story is one of my favorites of the series.
The different voices for the different characters.
They all had interesting back stories.
Good story for the Elm Creek retreats. Makes me want to go to one.
It would depend on the story involved.
Well since it was, yes.
Because I had seen the movie first, I had an expectation that was probably unrealistic. While I appreciated the truthfulness that was told, it was not as entertaining as the movie made it seem. The end of the book became hard to deal with for me as the language became objectionable. I would still not mind visiting this little zoo, however, if I was ever in that country.
I enjoyed getting to know new characters and their back stories. I kept asking myself if I would want to be in this "circle" and how I would react during the interviews.
I liked the additional impromptu interview each nominee had with Agnes. Nice touch!
Family history quilting
Sylvia Bergstrom is the character the story is built around. She gets to experience some sense of family history through her search for cherished quilts and memories.
It opened up the time during prohibition for me. I never thought about how some those lives might be affected by government decisions into morality.
