Great to listen while sewing

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.

Great as all her other books

Spent most of the time in the sad past but the story needed to be told.

Not a whole lot of story

I am an avid Elm Creek reader and this book, along with "The Christmas Quilt" were disappointing. The entire story was pretty much a repeat of things that have already happened in other books, not a lot of new content. I get tired of hearing the banter between Claudia and Sylvia as children. I don't think that the book is considering the fact that most readers have read other books from the series and the author does a lot of recapping assuming this is the first story. I will continue to read the rest of the series, but hope that the future books don't continue to recap previous books.

Love the story, favorite author

I have listened to this book about 20 times over the years, and I will continue to enjoy it for years to come.

Good read.

I would have been happier with less storyline review and more new information about characters. I never tire of quilting while I listen to Sylvia and her circle exploring their lives. Thanks, Jennifer.

Another satisfying offering by Jennifer Chiaverini

Just a pleasant read, as I knit and sip a cup of tea. The book brings us closer to Andrew and Sylvia as they struggle to gain acceptance of their marriage by Andrew's daughter.

Silvia's Reflections

I've enjoyed the series. This is a good Christmas/New Year's story that fills in some gaps about Silvia's past. There are also some lessons on family that would be good for many people to learn from. The narrator does a great job.

Charming Recap

If you want to have an overview of the Elm Creek Quilters stories, and especially main character, Silvia, this can be a good book to listen to as a sample. It was an insightful view into some of the events in Silvia's life readers didn't have full insight to before.

One of the best she has written. I have loved her books starting with the first she ever wrote.
