Family, Quilters, Bonding
Sarah for her quiet strength. Her love for her family and friends.
Only in the Elm Creek series. Christina Moore does an excellent job of bringing each character to life. I feel like I am listening to an old friend telling me a story.
At the beginning, I was surprised and sad to have the book start out 25 years later as in 2028. Sarah and Matt???s twins are now grown. One is working at Elm Creek and the other one is getting married and going to medical school. Sarah has become a well-known author on the history of quilts and proprietress of Elm Creek.
I would recommend this book to all Elm Creek readers.
In Jennifer???s style of storytelling, she merges past and present. Throughout the book, Sarah reminisces about past events as she welcomes family and friends back to Elm Creek in preparation for the wedding. There???s more than one wedding being celebrated in this book.
I learned about Sylvia getting more information on her Cousin Elizabeth???s family, and what Bonnie decided to do after she came back from Hawaii. I caught up with Gwen and Summer along with Diane???s family. I heard more about the new members - Anne and Maggie. I even learned more about the Civil War quilters and their Union Hall. I would have liked to have heard more about Gretchen and her husband along with Andrew. They are mentioned, but not as much as the others.
Halfway through I began to wonder if this was the last of the Elm Creek series. It sort of felt like the end since a lot of unfinished stories were being given an ending, but Jennifer has confirmed there will be more Elm Creek books in the future.
