    Good read

    Enjoyable continuation of this series with quilting as a backdrop. I recommend reading the entire series by this author.

    Jennifer's done it again

    I am in the process of reading all of her books, and so far none of them have disappointed me. This one is an edge of your seat book that is a must read. Brave people, and dangerous times, and the good guys find ways to help as many slaves escape captivity as possible. A new look at Elm Creek farm, and how some of the buildings were used, and new meanings for the antique quilts.

    Teriffic historical

    In the years prior to the Civil War in Creek Crossing, Pennsylvania, the Grangers having lost their farm to a flood and have taken refuge with Uncle Jacob, a pious but harsh man. Robert and Lorena Granger hope that when Jacob dies, the farm will go to their son Jonathan who is apprenticing to a physician in Baltimore. Teenaged Dorothea is the dutiful niece going so far as to make a quilt for her uncle when he requests a specific pattern.--- When her uncle dies, she learns that Jacob was an abolitionist and his Sugar Camp was a stop on the Underground Railroad. Dorothea and her parents vow to continue Jacob¿s work knowing if they are caught, they could lose the farm and go to jail. Once her beau Cyrus Pearson learns that Dorothea didn¿t inherit anything from her uncle he drops her and becomes engaged to another woman. When slave catchers threaten Dorothea and the slaves she is helping to free, she turns to her nemesis Thomas Nelson for aid and learns that love can creep up on a person.--- Jennifer Chiaverini captures the ambience of Pennsylvania in the years prior to the Civil War. Readers learn the fears and anxiety of the conductors of the Underground Railroad feel as they try to outwit slave catchers and those who help them for bounty. Dorothea is a brave and realistic heroine who along with her family needs to star in future historicals.--- Harriet Klausner

    To CreekClan from BloodClan

    I, Demonblood of BloodClan, am wondering if you, CreekSun, will join the Order of the Arrow. Remember though: only one cat per clan. K? Yes or no? Take it or leave it. But heaven forbid, just know KK is targeting you all. Reply on newspaper result four.

    companion book to the Union Quilters

    Having finished The Union Quilters, I went back to re-read the Sugar Camp Quilt. It was even better the second time through as I understood much more about Dorothea and the places in the area.

    The Sugar Camp is a mystery that unfolds in a very interesting and dramatic way. Ms. Chiaverini usues so many technical devices to entertain the reader. She stretches and challenges the reader. I love that!
