When precious heirloom quilts hand-stitched by her mother turn up missing from the attic of Elm Creek Manor, Sylvia Bergstrom Compson resolves to find them. From scant resources, journal entries, receipts, and her own fading memories, she pieces together clues, then queries quilting friends from around the world. When dozens of leads arrive via the Internet, Sylvia and her fiancé, Andrew, embark on a nationwide investigation of antiques shops and quilt museums.

Sylvia’s quest leads her to unexpected places, where offers of assistance are not always what they seem. As the search continues, revelations surface about her mother, Eleanor Lockwood, who died in 1930, when Sylvia was only a child. Burdened with poor health and distant parents, Eleanor Lockwood defied her family by marrying for love. Far from her Manhattan home, she embraced her new life among the Bergstroms, but although warmth and affection surrounded Eleanor at last, the Bergstroms could not escape the tragedies of their times.

    " I love Jennifer's books because they are an easy read and enjoyable. "

    " I missed reading this one in the series so I finally got around to reading it. I love the series and enjoyed the book but always better to read in order. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Holly (2 Kids and Tired) | 1/9/2014

    " I liked it. The book continues the story of Sylvia, this time as she tries to locate her mother's quilts. As the quilts were sold off by her sster, this involves internet research and travel. Her mother's story is interspersed with Sylvia's quest, which is nice, but the reader learns Eleanor's story, Sylvia doesn't. I wish the author had worked it so that Sylvia learned her mother's history, because that knowledge is something she craves. Overall, I enjoyed it: not quite as much as the others, but it was still good. "

    " Chiaverini has a good style and is a good story teller. I liked the alternating stories of the main character Sylvia and her mother and aunt's stories as a way to tell the stories of the quilts. Another in the on going series worth the read. "
