Listener Opinions

    " Many years ago I read, but wasn't overly impressed with, the first book in Chiaverini's collection of Elm Creek Quilters Novels. Out of the blue I recently picked up the second book and liked it much more. I enjoyed learnng the background stories of some of the women and current events in other's lives that made them seem like real people that might even be friends of mine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ami | 2/16/2014

    " I was thoroughly prepared for this book to be a disappointing sequel to Jennifer Chiaverini's first novel, something extremely too fluffy to enjoy with a good conscience. I was pleasantly surprised to find I thoroughly enjoyed this book. While it was slightly fluffy, I felt this second novel in the series more fully fleshed out its characters and gave the reader deeper insights into life at Elm's Creek. In fact, I think I liked this book better than the first. Dang it! Now I'm going to have to read the third in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Milly Dunaway | 2/13/2014

    " Another great book! I have fallen in love with these characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda Sutton | 1/28/2014

    " These folks are now familiar characters. Some of them whom I didn't like much in the first book (The Quilter's Apprentice) have been more fully fleshed out, and I'm beginning to like them. Some that I enjoyed are developing traits I really don't like. I'm staying up far too late into the wee hours reading this book, wanting to reach through the pages and just shake people a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 1/24/2014

    " Better - must have been, I stayed up to finish it. Onward ho!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 1/18/2014

    " Really enjoyed this book in the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/17/2014

    " This is another series - it started with The Quilters Apprentice, which I read several years ago. But picking up this one brought back all the memories of the first book which I loved. This one as each woman in the quilting bee confronts a personal crisis, a painful truth, or a life-changing choice, the quilt serves as a symbol of the complex and enduring bonds between mothers and daughters, sisters and friends. The Elm Creek Quilters come to realize that friendship is one of the most precious gifts we can give each other, and that love can strengthen understanding, lead to new beginnings, and illuminate our lives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise Kettering | 1/17/2014

    " I liked this book slightly less than the first book in the series, but the characters remained interesting. These books make me think more about the stories behind the quilts in my own family and that I encounter when I visit others. The book is a generally interesting read that raises the issue of how artistic expression through quilting helped these characters to explain and express their own issues and difficulties. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 1/12/2014

    " I have no idea why I love these books so much! But I do. I guess its because of all the crafting & lovely women. I practically want to live in books and be a part of the Elm Street Quilters. I can't wait to read the next one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelley | 1/6/2014

    " the continueing saga of a group of quilters and all of the characters personalities and tragedies and triumphs. I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/29/2013

    " i enjoyed this book as much as Chiaverini's first. I like the characters, learning more about quilting, and the bits and pieces of history included in the narrative. All in all, a lovely summer book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Sammis | 12/1/2013

    " The book just wasn't for me. The symbolism of the "round robin" as both plot device and motif just hit me as sappy. I didn't connect with any of the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie Monson | 11/28/2013

    " This was okay. It was fun to learn about some of the other characters from the first book and learn about their relationships, but the fact that they all had to have some kind of problem was a little far fetched. It wasn't quite as good as the first book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 11/24/2013

    " A sweet tale of women friends who quilt -- about their interpersonal relationships with their spouses, mothers or daughters, etc -- all ends well! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathie Knight Johnston Glanville | 8/1/2013

    " Great book. Got me back into quilting again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Hearne | 12/21/2012

    " The second of the 14 book series and a great read. Really brings quilting and the types of quilting to light, within the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 11/12/2012

    " Good story with lots of everyday ups and downs. Enjoyed it very much! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 11/4/2012

    " I really enjoyed the fact that we got to learn a little bit more about each of the other quilters. I'm not a fan of Sarah, so I really enjoyed getting to know every one else. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 8/11/2012

    " Elm Creek Quilt series are nice, somewhat innocent, quick reads. Refreshing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Relyn | 8/10/2012

    " Hmmm.... Not terrible, not even bad or boring... Just disappointing when compared to her first. Kind of blah. The redeeming part is that it really did have some good life lesson reminders - the power of forgiveness and of being interested in the things your loved ones care about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carla Sokotuk | 7/22/2012

    " Thanks, Ginger. I am enjoying the Elm Creek Quilters series. "

    " Good now I need to read the first one "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny Bushman | 5/29/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book--just as much as the first one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 8/30/2011

    " I really enjoy this series and the group of characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathie Hagen | 5/29/2011

    " I adore this series. This book was especially poignant, dealing with family estrangements (& rifts between dear friends). As always, when I read Chiaverini's books, I want to be quilting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 5/9/2011

    " Not a life-changer. But a nice easy read. Did make me cry ... but then again, I've got hormones surging these days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa Gassler | 5/2/2011

    " Loved this second book. The characters became more developed at Elm Creek Quilts. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stacy | 1/15/2011

    " I did not get past page 97 of the first novel. Then I went to the library and saw that this author is very prolific. I can't for the life of me see why, but she is obviously very popular - and wealthy, I would assume, by now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 8/25/2010

    " I really enjoyed the first three books of this series. It was like adding drama and intrigue to sewing. It actually made me want to take up quilting! Loved the descriptions of the fabrics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susanne | 1/9/2010

    " This was a lovely book to curl up in bed at night and read. Just nice stories really. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlene | 5/14/2009

    " Being a fiber artist I totally enjoyed the stories of the quilters lives with the quilts they were working on woven into the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benedette | 2/16/2009

    "
    This is a fun book about a woman who gets bitten by the quilting bug. Nothing too important happens. Nice to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/10/2009

    " i've read almost all of these elm creek quilters books, and i love them "
