The fourth book in the Elm Creek Quilts series focus's on Sylvia's search for information about her family's history. When she finds an old journal and quilt in the attic of Elm Creek Manor, readers are taken back to the time of the Civil War and learn how Sylvia's ancestor's became one of the greatest horse breeders of the era. I loved the historical aspects of this novel and was completely absorbed in the story. The book includes lots of detail, history, stories of family, friendship, and trial - and, of course, plenty of quilting! I was surprised by the unique ending to the book and also enjoyed learning a bit more about Sylvia and Andrew and their relationship as they travel.
