The sound of wedding bells are ringing in the ears of the Elm Creek Quilters. The close-knit group can hardly believe that their own Sylvia Compson planned her holiday wedding to sweetheart Andrew in complete secrecy, without the help of even one of her friends. Eager to honor the newlyweds, the Elm Creek Quilters hasten to stitch a bridal quilt for their favorite Master Quilter. Until the time comes to unveil the surprise gift, they reason, Sylvia will be the one in the dark.

Such little white lies seem harmless enough, especially in the service of future happiness. Yet Elm Creek Manor, and the quilting retreat established there by the Elm Creek Quilters, thrives on the strength of women sharing their creativity, their challenges, and their dreams. Somehow, in the race to commemorate in Sylvia’s bridal quilt all that they hold dear about her wisdom, skill, and devotion, they forget to give honesty its pride of place.

As the quilt blocks accumulate, the Elm Creek Quilters celebrate the joy of new beginnings and the ongoing success of their business until forces conspire to threaten their happiness and prosperity. Two among them falter in their personal relationships, yet they are too proud to share their pain. The financial problems of another leave the quilt project vulnerable to a malicious act that may prevent its completion. And as two others weigh the comfort of the present against dreams of a future far from Elm Creek Manor, closely guarded secrets strain the bonds of friendship with those who may be left behind.

    " Not my favorite of the series, but I still enjoyed it. However, I did enjoy the little bit of "mystery" thrown in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/18/2014

    " A delightful read.. of course I heard this one on CD. I particularly like the woman who reads..she does a GREAT job with the different voices. Very entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gill Farquharson | 2/13/2014

    " These are lovely books. Alight read but with an gripping storyline and full of wise advice. Not sure they would appeal to anyone who doesn't quilt, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda S. | 2/11/2014

    " I'm really getting tired of Jennifer Chiaverini's weak women characters. Some of these characters just are doormats for their husbands. I like the Elm Creek Quilt novels that deal with the history of the manor and their ancestors much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney Milford | 1/28/2014

    " Honestly, I'm foggy on exactly which of the Quliters' books this is, but it's a cute series and I know I read it at some point. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/19/2014

    " For some reason I love this series. There's nothing earthshattering about them, I don't learn anything new or about myself, but I finish each book wanting to learn more about our handicraft heritage. I suppose that's the point, really. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 1/17/2014

    " Not my favorite of her books, but still good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 12/22/2013

    " i really didn't like the way this one was done. it seemed very redundant to go through each persons story, and boring. the story itself was good with some good twists and turns though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherene | 11/21/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grumpy72 | 11/15/2013

    " No not high fiction but heartwarming, and sometimes funny read. I like the character development and the warmth of these books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 8/9/2013

    " not quite as engaging as the other ones have been... this time she covers the same time period over and over from the point of view of each of the different characters. Not a bad device, but each one is going through problems so it was a bit like watching a train wreck over and over. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lila | 5/5/2013

    " tolerable vacation reading...familiar characters from previous books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 2/7/2013

    " I like all of Jennifer Chiaverini's books - the characters are familiar and the stories and gentle and good reads. The quilting is just a part of it and though not a quilter, the quilting doesn't distract me from the story. Good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacquelyn | 1/30/2013

    " I really enjoyed this story based on women who belong a quilting guild. The chapters are separated by character and it was interesting to see events unfold from different view points. The end of the book brings all of the stories together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carissa | 1/29/2013

    " Enjoyed the story but it felt a little like the movie Goundhogs Day because you kept reading about the same parts but from other character's perspectives. Each character told a little more. I found it a little frustrating. "

    " Just finished listening to Jennifer Chiaverini's"The Master Quilter". Unlike too many other series, which tend to lose steam & interest as the books progress, this one seems to improve with each book. Four and a half stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terrah | 10/9/2012

    " This book was a little tedious-- it has about 8 characters that each tell their part of the story of the same three weeks of time. Not my favorite one of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 8/13/2012

    " This is really a 3 1/2 star book, just a fun, easy read (or listen to while you are playing taxi. There is a pretty nasty divorce in this book, which almost ruined the book for me, but all in all another fun Chiaverini book that blends quilts and reading--my faves!! "
