9780142180242: The Giving Quilt: An ELM Creek Quilts Novel

Every stitch makes a difference in "New York Times" bestselling author Jennifer Chiaverini's artful, inspiring novel that imagines what good would come from practicing the holiday spirit each and every day of the year. At Elm Creek Manor, the week after Thanksgiving is "Quiltsgiving," a time to commence a season of generosity. From near and far, quilters and aspiring quilters--a librarian, a teacher, a college student, and a quilt-shop clerk among them--gather for a special winter session of quilt camp, to make quilts for Project Linus, a charitable organization dedicated to providing handmade quilts and blankets to children in need. Each quilter, ever mindful that many of her neighbors, friends, and family members are struggling through difficult times, pledges the strength of her creative gifts to alleviate their collective burden. So it happens that when the Quiltsgiving participants swap fabrics and trade techniques around the quilting circle, the warm, bright, beautiful quilts they piece are infused with love and comfort. So, too, are their personal stories, which collectively consider the strength of human connection and its rich rewards.

Review:

Praise for Jennifer Chiaverini and the Elm Creek Quilts series "Chiaverini's themes of love, loss, and healing will resonate with many, and her characters' stories are inspiring." --"Publishers Weekly" "Jennifer Chiaverini has made quite a name for herself with her bestselling Elm Creek Quilts series. From the Civil War to the Roaring Twenties to contemporary settings, these novels have offered suspense, romance, and, at times, in-depth looks into the social, political, and cultural differences that helped shape a nation." --"BookPage" "Chiaverini excels at weaving stories and at character development. We can relate to the residents of Elm Creek Valley because they remind us of folks we know--a cousin, an aunt, or a grandmother." --"Standard-Examiner" (Utah) "Jennifer Chiaverini's strength is not only writing strong female characters, but also placing them in interesting lives and times." --"New York Journal of Books"
