Having enjoyed the Elm Creek series thus far, this book is a big disappointment. It is a tired re-hashing of past facts. If you had never read any of the other books in the series, I'm sure you would enjoy it, but I got tired of wading through page after page of the same ol' same ol'. This story could have been told in 2 chapters. This is the second book of the series that I have read that seems to be more interested in filling up pages instead of telling a story.

It seems that the author is just churning out these books for the money instead of waiting until she can come up with a new story line.

Very heartwarming and soul healing. I love Sylvia and she is at times quite whitty.

This is a very warm and delightful story. It's a must read for those who have been following Jennifer's wonderful series. Kirkus needs to understand that sometimes life's simple pleasures are the BEST!

After five decades away from Elm Creek Manor, the estranged Sylvia Compson returned home too late make any amends with her deceased Bergstrom relatives. Now Christmas is coming, but the septuagenarian does not feel like celebrating her first Yuletide in her family home in fifty years. --- Her quilting camp partner Sarah McClure and the youngster¿s spouse orchards gardener Matt plan to celebrate Yuletide at Elm Creek. Sarah feels some guilt that she is not going to visit her family, but believes the fault lies with her mother who overtly displays her loathing of Matt. Sarah persuades a reluctant Sylvia to go into the attic to look at the holiday ornaments where they find an unfinished Christmas quilt and the memories of the joys in spite of the Depression the depression of loved ones dying during World War II, and much more. Sylvia regrets her stubbornness that is too late to mend fences and pleads with Sarah to square things with her mother. --- Though fans of the Elm Creek Quilt series might be a bit confused as to the timing as this entry occurs before Sylvia marries Andrew (see last year¿s THE MASTER QUILTER), long time readers will enjoy the latest tale. The somewhat sugary story line contains a deep message that there is no time in life to hold grudges. Sarah is terrific as the attic mementos have her looking back on the joys, tragedies, and mistakes in her life. Though suited for those in the audience who have read most of the previous novels (memories will mean much more) because some newcomers might have some problems with what happened to whom, Jennifer Chiaverini provides a warm holiday tale that adds to the Elm Creek manor saga. --- Harriet Klausner
