Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jennifer Chiaverini’s Elm Creek Quilts novels are hailed as “classics of their kind” by The Dallas Morning News.

Master quilter Sylvia Compson, the sage voice guiding the Elm Creek Quilters, is getting married. The occasion should be festive, but things turn sour. The quilters have prospered, but now their unity is threatened. They must either iron out their differences or face a future that may not be spent together.

Love the series, but this has too many repeats

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I this story could easily been told with a third fewer words.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

So many of the sections were developed by repeating nearly verbatim earlier scenes. I don't claim to know the best way to tell various characters perspectives on an event, but reusing text seems just a way to make a book longer. This book included a mystery that needed solving (and was very satisfactorily done) but I think the whole could have been "tighter."

Any additional comments?

I'm not giving up though, I have enjoyed the characters as performed by Christina Moore, and look forward to Book 7!

Another great book in the series

This book wasn't my favorite, but I thoroughly enjoyed listening. I will continue to be an Elm Creek fan and work my way through the series.

I love the consistency from book to book and having the same narrator. Makes me feel close to the characters, like meeting up with friends. Like the twists and turns in this book, definitely expanding on the story lines as we move through each book.

Super fab!

I love this series. As a new quilter it's fun learning the names of quilt blocks and it inspires me to look up the blocks they Elm Creek quilters talk about. This was one of my favorite books in this series.

Love 1-5, hate book 6

This book tells the story (over and over and over again) from several characters perspectives. It would not be so bad if there was a huge difference of perspective, but there isn't so you heard each event over and over again. I have never been so happy to have a book end.

Another good Elm Creek Quilt story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook to someone who enjoys the series or who likes stories with solid characters and life lessons.

Any additional comments?

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.
