The latest installment in the Elm Creek Quilts series tells the multigenerational story of a quilt teacher's search for her mother's heirloom quilts, as well as what she learns about the lives they've been part of. The novel also relates how quilting came to be a part of her mother's difficult life and the comfort they brought to her in the early twentieth century. Christina Moore's narration is lush and sunny. She brings enlightenment to each character, easily revealing their thoughts and emotions. Moore has the perfect talent for narrating woman's fiction as she seems to have an especially good grasp of multilayered female characters. This warm, comforting story is a good bet for anyone who likes to sew or quilt. D.G.
