Description
Also the author of such historical novels as Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker, Jennifer Chiaverini is best known for her Elm Creek Quilts novels, centered on a quilting retreat in rural Pennsylvania. This ninth book in the series, following The Christmas Quilt, is itself a patchwork, as we are introduced to several new characters who appear in later books. The impending departure of two Elm Creek Quilts founders means big changes for the group and, as difficult as it may be, replacements must be found. "We must evaluate all of the applicants' qualities," advises Master Quilter Sylvia Compson. "Our choice will say as much about us as it says about who we decide to hire." But who merits a place among the close circle of quilters and friends? Will it be Maggie, whose love of history shines through in all her projects; Anna, whose food-themed quilts are wonderfully innovative; Russ, the male quilter with a completely original style; Karen, a novice teacher whose gifts for language complement her deep understanding of the quilters' mission; or Gretchen, the soulful veteran whose craft is inspired by quilting tradition?

"An ad for an instructor at the camp attracts candidates from near and far, all offering a look at different perspectives on what quilting means in their lives. Maggie, who works at a convalescent home, stumbled into quilting when she found one at a garage sale and traced its history; Russell, who completed the cancer quilt begun by his wife before she succumbed to that disease, brings an abstract aesthetic—and a male perspective—to the craft; Anna, who is as creative a chef as a quilter, lacks the confidence to stand up for herself in a failing relationship; and Gretchen is a veteran quilter who has struggled with humble beginnings, but her abiding love for the craft has inspired her to make of it a life and a business. All pass through Elm Creek Quilt Camp as the women who run and love the camp deliberate the meaning of the art form."—Booklist
