New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Chiaverini returns with a delightful holiday-themed installment of her beloved Elm Creek Quilts series, a captivating and heartwarming story that is sure to become a holiday favorite.
Just weeks before Christmas, severe winter weather damages the church hall that houses the Christmas Boutique, an annual sale of handmade gifts and baked goods that supports the county’s food pantry. Determined to save the fundraiser, Sylvia Bergstrom Compson offers to host the event at Elm Creek Manor, her ancestral family’s estate and the summer home of Elm Creek Quilt Camp.
In the spirit of the season, Sylvia and Elm Creek Quilters begin setting up market stalls in the ballroom and decorating the aisles with beautiful, handmade Christmas quilts. Each of the quilters chooses a favorite quilt to display, a special creation that evokes memories of holidays past and dreams of Christmases to come. Sarah, a new mother expecting twins, worries if she will be able to handle raising two babies, especially with her husband so often away on business. Cheerful, gray-haired Agnes ponders a beautiful appliqué quilt she made when she was a young bride and the mysterious long-lost antique quilt that inspired her. Empty nesters and occasional rivals, Gwen and Diane gaze at family heirlooms and unfinished projects as they wait to have their children home again for the holidays.
But while the Elm Creek Quilters work tirelessly to make sure the Christmas Boutique gets off the ground, it may take a holiday miracle or two to make it the smashing success they want it to be.
Praised for her ability to create “a wonderfully festive mix of family heritage, reconciliation, and shared experiences” (Tucson Citizen), Jennifer Chiaverini welcomes back the holiday season with this long-awaited addition to her beloved series.
