Description
A Roaring Twenties tale of boom and bust unfolds in this historical tenth entry in the Elm Creek Quilts series, following Circle of Quilters. Young bride Elizabeth Bergstrom Nelson sets off with her husband Henry from Elm Creek Manor, her family home in Pennsylvania, to start a new life in 1925 southern California. Expecting to assume ownership of Triumph Ranch, they find that their deed is a fake, and they instead must work for the rightful proprietors to earn their keep. Elizabeth trades her trousseau of fine quilts, stitched by her relatives, for practical goods—then discovers a cache of mysterious quilts made by the family of her new friend Rosa Diaz Barclay.

"[Jennifer] Chiaverini branches off from a flashback in The Christmas Quilt to take up the early adulthood of Sylvia Bergstrom Compson's beloved older cousin Elizabeth. Despite four-year-old Sylvia's efforts to keep her from leaving, Elizabeth Bergstrom marries neighbor Henry Nelson at Elm Creek Manor in Pennsylvania in 1925 and moves to southern California, where Henry has bought a cattle ranch. Predictably, plans go awry when the newlyweds find that Henry has been bilked; just as predictably, Elizabeth copes, as Bergstrom women do, even being charitable to those in greater need. The Nelsons' tale is intertwined with that of three generations of the Diaz family, original owners of the Arboles Valley land Henry thought he had bought, and in both families quilts prove to be the tangible expressions of their makers' emotions."—Booklist
