    Jennifer Chiaverini's new book

    Sonoma Rose, just published, is a good story. Not very much about quilting, but a piece of the story about Elizaberth Nelson, and a sympathetic view of a woman's life is the early 1900's. I enjoyed it.

    Thanks for the reminder - I just went and put it on hold at my library I usually do that before it comes out and missed the boat

    I got on the waiting list at my library, and they just notified me that I can pick up the book. I'm looking forward to this particular book because I always wondered what the heck happend to Elizabeth. Hopefully this book will have the answer.

    I have had it on hold waiting for the order to come in for about 3 weeks. Just finishing up The Union Quilters and gotta say it seems more like a book about the civil war battle scene than a quilt series book. Still enjoying it, don't get me wrong, but would prefer more focus on the quilting and Elm Creek.

    I happened to be at the library the day they put their copy into circulation so it is now in my stack to read.

    Cheers, K

    Hmmmm... after reading that on her page, I agree with you, Thimble - not my interest, either. The person in line after me will be happy that they get the book 3 weeks earlier.

    Just finished the book. It was interesting but I don't think it was her best. The one I had trouble following was the Wedding Quilt. They way it was written it seemed a culmination book. Like it was the last of the series. I was surprised when another one came out.

    Sorry, when she got away from stories of the Elm Creek Quilters she lost me as a reader.

    I quit reading the Wedding Quilt half way through. She put in too much liberal political views in the story for me. I agree getting away from the Elm Creek Quilters lost my interest.
    Got fabric?
