Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/16/2014

    " The one that started it all for me and this author. Totally recommend her. Most are great! A few are okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/11/2014

    " This is a continuation of the "Elm Creek Quilters" series. Fictional, a fun read and good character development. The best part of this series is that you don't have to read them in order. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Susabelle | 1/30/2014

    " Easy and quick read, but not much substance. There were a couple of characters that were a bit less believable than they should have been, and certainly, the "main" character who was supposed to pull all the others together in the end was a complete unknown. There are apparently a series of Elm Creek Quilt novels, I'm not sure I'll be going out to look for any more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Roy | 1/13/2014

    " An easy-going read for women, which focuses on the history and personality of each member of a quilting community, one by one. I listened to the recorded book while working on a tedious project, and enjoyed it. If I had tried to read it, I would probably have put it down and never picked it up again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 1/12/2014

    " This series of books is sweet and simple. The perfect thing for a summer day by the pool! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcia Kauffman | 1/9/2014

    " The author was able to weave several stories into one. I have read a couple of these quilt stories and like how the author refers back and forth to the characters in the novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gill Farquharson | 1/8/2014

    " I found this book quite gripping and am looking forward to the introduction of new characters to replace old ones which I hope will give the stories a lift. Is it my imagination or has Jennifer become just a little stale? "

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

    " It's amazing how much plat she gets into what seems to be a series of character sketches. I think I'll pull out my monster UFO (Unfinished Object) quilt this weekend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Finelli | 12/22/2013

    " It was difficult to get into reading this book with the introduction of the new staff members stories. Once I began to read about the original characters, starting with Gwen, it became familiar and more enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 12/16/2013

    " I liked this but not as much as some of her others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 11/8/2013

    " Just love the Elm Creek Quilt series. I don't quilt, but love them anyway! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy Neal | 11/6/2013

    " Love this series. Light reading for someone who quilts. Women's relationships and shared interest and support. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 8/28/2013

    " Good for a change after reading a heavy subject matter to lighten your heart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 5/13/2013

    " I haven't met an Elm Creek Quilts book I didn't like! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 1/7/2013

    " If this were the first of the series, I probably wouldn't have read the rest of them. Tons of uninteresting back stories and very little plot. blech. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 12/7/2012

    " An enjoyable book that gave some back story to characters I already knew from previous books as well as introducing some new characters. It didn't move journeys much further, however I did enjoy learning more about the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith | 7/9/2012

    " All her books are good but have to start with first one to really enjoy the books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 6/26/2012

    " This one of my preferred books from this series. I really like the stories of the modern women the best. Sometimes the authors use of quilt similes is a bit forced, but I was interested to see how the new teachers were assimilated into the group. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 4/21/2012

    " I've loved all the books in this series! This one I enjoyed finding out how all the characters got started in quilting. I always want to go on a quilting retreat after reading these books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mandy | 12/15/2011

    " I just finished this latest addition to the Elm Creek Quilts book - I love the way she dedicated each chapter to one character and their story, while still keeping them all involved in each others lives. Best one yet! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 10/20/2011

    " This whole series of books have been fun to read. I have read them, and now am listening to them as books on CD while I am working on quilts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 10/12/2011

    " I love this series. In this book the Elm Creek Quilters are having to part ways and allow new comers into their tight circle. The Elm Creek Quilt series is well written and takes an in depth look at the life and relationships and the things that bond us together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carissa | 10/9/2011

    " I love how the author always ties in quilt history. I especially enjoyed how she uses a pattern and puts so much meaning into it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Lyn | 9/23/2011

    " The more I read these books the more I fall in love with all the characters and want to improve my quilting skills. "

    " I've read at least one other of Chiaverini's Quilt series, although I don't remember which one(s). They are pleasant, easy reading as a change of pace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 7/29/2011

    " lovely book about friendship and choices in life and how they intertwine and can be symbolized in an age-old craft. You can pick it up without having read even one the first thirteen books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lain | 5/18/2011

    " I'm now addicted to these books! The only thing I didn't like was the way Gwen's story had such a loose end (no pun intended). I hope it will be resolved ina future book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorrie | 4/3/2011

    " #2 on my list of Nancy Drew books read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 3/11/2011

    " I haven't met an Elm Creek Quilts book I didn't like! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shirley | 2/16/2011

    " not really that interesting to me although I have quilted in the past. Found the book confusing as the author jumped around in time, telling the back story of the characters. Couldn't always be sure whether an event was past or current. Hope the other two books I have by this author are better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marge | 2/3/2011

    " Oh, Jennifer - same thing over and over - quilting is great, quilters are terrific. No real story here - still makes me want to go to quilting camp though. The only interesting thing here was the history of two of the quilters I never heard in the other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 1/13/2011

    " You even get to liking the new characters Jennifer brings into the fold. She just really weaves an enjoyable story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb4264 | 1/10/2011

    " This is the 3rd book of this series I have read, and it is the best one so far. All the stories are good, but this one delves deeper into who each of the characters. I recommend this book to anyone. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adrienne S. | 12/27/2010

    " I always run to fiction when I'm stressed. Thank you fiction for being my friend, even when I say I don't like you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 12/17/2010

    " I enjoyed listening to this book very much. It was a lovely portrayal of the diversity of women who can be friends. A happy story with a happy, continuing ending. I think this might be part of a series, but I haven't read any of the other books. Interesting quilt/ing facts. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sally | 9/7/2010

    " This was a kind of slow moving book, although those familiar with the series will like learning how the founders of Elm Creek Quilters learned how to quilt. It sets readers up for the new instructors at Elm Creek Quilters to take their place in the Manor "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 7/26/2010

    " Always enjoy visiting the Elm Creek Quilters, and this book was no exception. It's been a while, and certainly since I read the first Elm Creek, so this book was a welcome review of the past while picking up the stitches of the present and taking a peak into the future. A good summer read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 7/11/2010

    " Another great book about the Elm Creek Quilters and their lives and challenges. New members are joining the group as some of the original founders move on. "
