Another good Elm Creek Quilt addition to this most enjoyable series. This one follows Elizabeth and her new husband from Elm Creek to California during the 1920s where a ranch awaits them in an idealic valley. Unfortunately, things don't turn out quite as they hoped and life takes a difficult turn. I very much enjoyed the interesting characters in this Elm Creek story. Chiaverini has developed several complex and interesting "real people" to enhance this story and, as always, her storytelling ability is evident as it's hard to not care what happens to Lars and Rosa and May and others. My only complaint was that I found Elizabeth's tolerance of her husband's self-pity a bit annoying, but I also realize I'm reading about a "good girl" from the 1920s. I enjoyed the book very much and, as always, Christina Moore does an excellent job with narrating Chiaverini's story.
