Listener Opinions

    " This book takes you on an unsuspecting journey into the world of enslavement and the Underground Railroad. It is really a beautiful story that teaches you the meaning of looking deeper into the bahavior of others as it often reveals a significant meaning of which we are completely unaware. The power of the quilt, its deeper meaning to render assistance in ways we never dreamed possible. Things and people are often not what they seem... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 2/8/2014

    " this book didn't include the same characters of the other 3 books i read from this author and it was very entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 1/30/2014

    " I loved this book! I am not huge into historic fiction, but each of Jennifer Chiaverini's historical novels, I have adored! This story had it all--adventure, sweet family relationships, nervewracking adventures, and even a tinge romance. On to the next! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah Muffoletto | 1/29/2014

    " This series is pretty good. Because I quilt it was great to understand what they are feeling as they put their heart and souls into something that they give to someone they love!! I intend to read other books by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 1/27/2014

    " Another intriguing story. I did miss the Elm Creek Quilters in this more historical book. The characters were new to me and I kept wondering how they'd fit in with Sylvia and her family ties to Elm Creek. Never came full circle in that regard, but I really liked the story of the underground railroad and how much sacrifice and passion it took to run one. Not sure I'd have had the guts to do it..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janis Worley | 1/24/2014

    " Really well done, loved how they explained the use of quilt markings as part of the underground railroad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/20/2014

    " A great read that sucked me right in... I enjoyed every minute of it, and I loved hearing Dorothea's story since we know her from other books, she is an intruiging character, and I hope that we get to see her again at some point! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasha | 1/19/2014

    " A little predictable, but good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Forbes | 1/10/2014

    " Like Little House on the Prairie for grown ups. Because I listened to this in my car, I looked forward to every drive. The writing is not breathtaking and there are no astounding insights. Just an engaging story well told. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ariel | 1/9/2014

    " A gentle book that inspired an appreciation for the meaning of quilts to their makers and to those who receive them as gifts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 1/8/2014

    " One of a series of books which I am still in the middle of reading. Thus far, I love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 12/18/2013

    " I love these books they are great stories as well as learning information about the history of quilts and the uses and patterns. I actually listened to this book an tape when I was driving...was never ready to reach my destination and have to turn the car off! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/6/2013

    " This is easily one of my favourites in the series. Although the eventual outcome was pretty easy to predict from about 1/3 of the way through, it was still well executed and had a great way of interweaving a sweet and heartwarming story with serious moral issues. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Harrington | 11/26/2013

    " I liked this book of the series mor than the first one I read. It is an interesting period during the abolitionist movement in Pennsylvania.....would be of interest to young women readers as the character is a strong young female. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny W | 9/21/2013

    " I probably would not have independently picked up this book to read, but I am GLAD I did! It was my book club's pick this month, and I THOROUGHLY enjoyed it. I enjoy historical fiction, and I find tales of the underground railway both intriguing and inspiring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Hubbard | 8/19/2013

    " I really liked this book in the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 E. | 6/10/2013

    " This book is about the time before the abolition and how people found clandestine ways to help black slaves reach the north safely "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 4/3/2013

    " Best of the Elm Creek Quilt novels I have so far read. Set during the use of the Underground Railroad, an interesting and motivating story of doing what's right without regard to the ones personal safety "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Delores Orcutt | 3/26/2013

    " I had read this book before but decided to reread the series from the beginning. I don't know how I missed it before but this book is like a retelling of Pride and Prejudice in Elm Creek setting. Enjoyable read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie Waibel | 8/9/2012

    " wondetful book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Taylor | 7/27/2012

    " This was like Pride & Prejudice during the Civil War. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 6/7/2012

    " At first the ripped off dance scene from P&P annoyed me enough that I thought I wouldn't like the book, but I got over it and enjoyed the book on its own merits. I think Chiaverini should have avoided avoided using P&P as a backdrop for this book, but it was still good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rapitch | 2/15/2012

    " Loved this one . . . an excellent love story!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 10/19/2011

    " The worst book so far. Slow and boring until the last few chapters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon Skarshaug | 9/11/2011

    " I like the historical setting of this book. Sometimes I can't connect with her characters but not so in this book. Intriguing and informative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 5/30/2011

    " This was a good book but the blurb on the back basically gave away the plot. Bummer. Also the ending left MUCH to be desired. This does not affect my desire to continue quilting though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terrah | 5/23/2011

    " One of the best yet. I'm loving this series... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karin | 4/17/2011

    " Completely stand-alone from the rest of the series - set in the 1850s and is about a young woman helping runaway slaves. Good plot, but the characters could have been developed better and been less of caricatures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 3/9/2011

    " This book is one in a series called "Elm Creek Quilts." It is the second one I have read and I really enjoyed them both. They are a simple, good story. It doesn't seem to matter which order you read the books, they don't seem to be too connected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 2/25/2011

    " I liked this book. It read pretty slow the first 1/2, but I love reading historical fiction, so in that way I loved it. I also love reading about courageous and strong women. I wasn't crazy about the end, I thought it needed another chapter. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 2/11/2011

    " I made it through 3 discs and this story just didn't catch my attention. I like the Elm Creek Quilter ladies stories better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Oleta | 2/8/2011

    " This is the first time I have read a book in that series. enjoyed it, think I will try another. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 1/13/2011

    " This was like Pride & Prejudice during the Civil War. Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becki | 1/10/2011

    " Can be read prior to "The Runaway Quilt". You get to 'meet' Sylvia's ancestors' neighbors in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/15/2010

    " This Pride and Prejudice spin-off was good for what it was. The romance part was a little sappy, but I enjoyed the action around the underground railroad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janeen | 12/14/2010

    " Runaway slaves and quilts. Interesting drama/gentle story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angie | 11/19/2010

    " Not quite what I was expecting...I wanted more related to the underground railroad instead of all the family drama. Still, it was okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carla | 11/8/2010

    " Just missed reading more about the actual Elm Creek Quilters. "
