Next week, April 2nd, the 20th novel in Jennifer Chiaverini's The Elm Creek Quilts
series will be released in softcover. The good folks at
Plume (member of Penguin Group
) sent me a copy to review and an extra to
"The Giving Quilt" reacquaints
us with familiar characters and introduces a few new ones, quilters gather to
spend a week at Elm Creek Manor for a very special purpose. This is not
your average quilt retreat, during their stay at the historical manor,
the participants enjoy the many amenities of the vast property, learn
new skills and form new friendships, but it is not all about what they
are gaining...it is about giving, you see, the quilts they create this
week are to be donated to Project Linus.
While you won't find mystery
and intrigue.....no page turning drama, many readers may relate to the
story. Much of the book takes place far from Elm Creek Manor,
chronicling the lives of 5 women, who each have their own reason for
attending the retreat, we are taken to their home towns, where we are
witness to their everyday life, struggles and triumphs.
