    Author Jennifer Chiaverini’s beloved, heartwarming series continues with this celebration of family and friendship. As the wedding day of Sarah McClure’s daughter Caroline approaches, Sarah’s thoughts are filled with brides of Elm Creek Manor past and present. A wedding quilt is a powerful metaphor, and Sarah is determined that the blocks in her daughter’s quilt will display a vivid pastiche of love in all its varieties.

    If you could sum up The Wedding Quilt in three words, what would they be?

    Family, Quilters, Bonding


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sarah for her quiet strength. Her love for her family and friends.


    Have you listened to any of Christina Moore???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
