The Sugar Camp Quilt (Elm Creek Quilts Series #7) by Jennifer Chiaverini, Jenny Sterlin

History is thick with secrets in The Sugar Camp Quilt, seventh in the beloved Elm Creek Quilts series from bestselling author Jennifer Chiaverini. Set in Creek's Crossing, Pennsylvania, in the years leading up to the Civil War, the novel follows Dorothea Granger's passage from innocence to wisdom against the harrowing backdrop of the American struggle over slavery. She discovers that a quilt she has stitched for her uncle Jacob with five unusual patterns of his own design contains hidden clues to guide runaway slaves along the Underground Railroad.

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.

I have been reading The Elm Creek quilters book in order. I love these stories and I can't get enough of them. This story The Sugar Camp Quilt was not what I expected from Jennifer Chiaverini. The story took a turn that I did not see coming but it was very exciting to me. This book has made me stop and really think about how people lived before the cival war and the underground railroad. I would and I have recommended this book to my friends.

Book seven of the series. Just as great as the other six. A good, clean, cozy mystery. No blood, guts or gore. Each book averagers about 250 pages. No sex, cursing or bad habits. Some moderate violence. Religion is a given, but never overboard. There is a touch of romance. Chick lit, ages 14 and up. Great books for quilters. AD

Jennifer's quilt series have been an outstanding read. I just read them too fast, since I can't put them down. They are very heart warming and touch the soul. This one is of the same substantial heartfelt genre. An excellent read.
