The fifth novel in Chiaverini's Elm Creek Quilt series focus's on Sylvia's quest to find five of her mother's cherished quilts. Sylvia's mother died when she was a child and Slyvia has fond memories of learning how to quilt and making her own quilts. After the estate feel into debt, Sylvia's sister sold the quilts to pay for living expenses. After learning of this, Slyvia journeys across the country with her finance, Andrew, to try to find the lost quilts. The story was a little farfetched (to say the least), but I loved the historical details and the story. Slyvia's mother was such an interesting character and I enjoyed learning more about her life and how she came to live at Elm Creek Manor.
