    "Extremely Entertaining"

    This is the second book I've listened to by Ms. Chiaverini. The first, Sugar Camp Quilt, was okay, but it is only because I'm a quilter that I decided to try this latest offering. What a happy surprise to find out her writing is stronger and her story line is more innovative and compelling in this book. In fact, I listened to the entire book in just two days - something pretty unusual for me. It was a good story with believable characters. I laughed several times, and I shed a tear. I found the ending to round things out and tie ends satisfactorily (always a nice bonus when you've enjoyed the story).

    "Rave - Elm Creek Quilts"

    Outstanding! This is almost like 6 different short stories in one book. Each chapter was like a mini book giving the reader a glimpse into the life of various quilters and the paths that led them there. I'm also a quilter so found the book particuliarly entertaining, possibly one of the best I have listened to all year. You won't be disappointed.

    "Very good 'read'"

    While this book is very different from others in this series, it introduces a whole new cast of characters in a way that involves one in their lives and want to know more about them. I enjoyed it and look forward to the next in this series.

    "Delightful surprise"

    I was so prepared to hate this book, questioning what had intrigued me into buying it. I'm not (yet) a quilter and I still don't know what made me put it into my shopping cart. Even when I started it, right after finishing a wonderful book, I was expecting to be disappiointed. As the charactrs were laid out before me, the negative anticipation gave way to empathy and delight. I really cared about the five "applicants" and now, a day or two later, I'm thinking should get a book later in the series just to see how they have fared.

    The downside of this novel is that now I am not certain the I will ever take up quilting, which I've always planned to do "eventually." The book makes it sound very complicated and time consuming and a pasttime requiring more attention and time than I have available. For those who are already quilters, it is probably lots of fun to read about familiar designs and techniques, and even perhaps get hints of new ones.

    I have read that this particular novel is different from others in the series. I will certainly read another of the novels. This, as a stand-alone, is quite good.

    "Circle of Quilters (Unabridged)"

    I've been a fan of Jennifer Chiaverini for years and have read most of her books. I believe that this one is one of her best! I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    "Circle of Quilters"

    This book fooled me. I took it only because I have a dear friend who quilts and this caught my fancy. I found I had discovered a world I had no idea existed. The premise is simple: The quilt camp needs a new teacher. We actually get several distinct stories in one, as we read about how each applicant came to quilting and ends up applying. The author did an excellent job giving her characters depth and individuality... even to the extent that I didn't like all of them equally!

    The book has a leisurely pace and a relaxing rhythm and I wanted it to last. Some of the credit for that goes to the author's storytelling ability, but some of the credit most certainly goes to Christina Moore, whose narration is really excellent. I've purchased another "quilt camp" series book and that is a credit to this author and this narrator.

    "Couldn't put it down"

    Once I got into this book and realized the depth that was going into each of the main characters I couldn't stop listening to it. I loved it and it will stay with me for a long time. The reader was so amazing because I heard so many different voices and accents.

    "Made me want to learn to quilt"

    What a great book! Was not sure what to expect from this book - but was pleasantly surprised at how I loved every character. After listening - I am actually considering learning to quilt - bought a beginners book today!

    "Love these women-everywoman"

    I live to sew and sew to live. I love being able to listen to these wonderful stories of women lives, friendships and challenges while I'm sewing. You really don't need to know how to sew or quilt to appreciate thesae stories. I have also listened while driving and not wanted to get out of the car after an entire day of driving.

    "Loved, loved, loved"

    I find that if a book grabs me and I don't want to leave it then it's a 5! This one did just that, all of her book do. I love to quilt, but listening to quilting stories while I quilt just puts the icing on the cake!
