Suspense and history
Jennifer Chiaverini has outdone herself with this book! It is the fourth in the Elm Creek Quilt series, and by far the best - both in story line, writing and the injection of suspense.
Although there are characters who appear in the previous novels, the author skillfully introduces them to the reader without the necessity of having read the first books.
This is truly a 'stay up late and read more' book!

the Runaway Quilt
This was my favorite book out of the "Elm Creek" Quilt series! the bits of history are fascinating for civil war buffs and have led me into research of the subject of Quilts and how they may have been used. i also have loved the charactors in this book and the rest of the series and their interaction with each other. a great book!

skip ahead to memoir
I read this book as part of a bookclub selection. We all agreed that it would have been a great short story had the author pulled out the "memoir" section and left it at that. However, when we chose it we didn't realize it was part of a series so some of the things that seemed rather hum-drum to us may have connected to something else in the series that we weren't aware of.-- Interesting if you like quilting; lots of facts about quilts and references to the history of them. Also interesting to get a snapshot of how the Northeast viewed slavery before the Civil War. --It is a quick read.
