I Have A Book For You...


...this book could have your name on it, if you're the lucky winner!  I have a brand-new, pre-release, copy of Jennifer Chiaverini's newest Elm Creek Quilts novel: Sonoma Rose to give away. In this, her nineteenth novel, Chaiverini returns with a Prohibition-era novel about one woman's courageous journey to save her family and herself. If you're like me and you enjoy relaxing with a a good book (under a quilt, of course!) you'll love this one. Simply leave a comment revealing your favorite Elm Creek Quilts novel; I will draw a winning name on Friday. (Be sure that you have a valid e-mail account attached to your name so that I can contact you.) I love the Elm Creek series because of the rich character development, opening a new book for me is like reconnecting with good, old friends for a cherished visit. Sonoma Rose will appear in bookstores everywhere on February 21, be one of the first to own it by commenting here; good luck! You can't win if you don't enter, tell your friends too!
This giveaway has officially ended, thanks for participating!
Life is Good!

I would love to win the book. I have her book The Wedding Quilt on my Kindle now. I was surprised to see it available from my library.

Linda said...

I have read all of Jennifer's Elm Creek books but haven't bought the new one, yet. My favorite one is Runaway Quilt. She does a wonderful job of weaving history into her quilt-themed books.
I sure hope I'm lucky in your giveaway ;-)

I have only read one of her books so far and that was Circle of Quilters.
I enjoyed the book and would like to explore her other books as well.

KQ Sue said...

Would love to have the book! I have only read a couple of her books. Edward McKay used to be my main source of books, never found any of Jennifer's books there. I think I liked The Wedding Quilt best.

I love Jennifer Chaiverini!! My favorite so far (and I've loved them all) is The Runaway Quilt. It has inspired me to make an Underground Railroad quilt that I started last month. I am still working on reading the Elm Creek series and have a few more to bring me up to date!

Synthia said...

Put my name in the hat! I've read many of Jennifer's books and liked them all, but the first one was my favorite as it set the scene for the stories in the series. I'd sure love to win your copy of her new book.

Teresa in Music City said...

Oh I just love Jennifer's books! It is so hard to pick a favorite.... I would have to say I enjoyed her first book the most as it introduced all the characters and made me fall in love with all of them. Thanks for giving us the chance to win the newest one!!!

Oh my, I didn't know that she has another book coming out. I've read all in the series (and had to wait a long time for the last one ... there was quite a waiting list at the library). I would LOVE to be able to get this one without a long, long wait. ;-)

I don't know that I have a favorite ... although as a one-time history major in college ("specializing" in Civil War history), I enjoyed the Runaway Slave an awful lot.

Thanks!!

I met Jennifer at a book signing last November. Prior to that I had only read one of her books. Now I have read the first three and so far the first has been my favorite of the three. I have three more of them waiting to be read. I'd love to add another to the queue. She did show us Sonoma Rose at the book signing and talk a little about it. Thanks for this opportunity, Mrs. G.

Cathi said...

Loved them all! I guess I'd pick Runaway Quilt (as many others did) because I enjoyed the history.

Choosing a favorite Elm Creek book is like choosing a favorite quilt. I have loved them all and re read several. The Lost Quilter really stuck with me. I thought about JoAnna for months after I read it.
love you blog

I love Jennifer's books. I've read or listened to just about all of them. My favorite is the very first but a close second is "The Runaway Quilt".

Nane said...

just catching up on the blogs...kudos to you and Mr GN to be back on the walking routine. We started biking to get ready for our trip and I hope we can keep it up. And WOW your Southern Album is a stunner...will it be ready for the quilt show in March I wonder?

Grandma M said...

I've only read Runaway Quilt but would love to read some more. The history was very interesting.

Paula TheQuilter said...

How did you manage to get a pre-release? I am jealous. But then, maybe my luck will change & I can win this book. Trying to pick a favorite of her books is like trying to pick your favorite chocolate from the box. The book in my hands is the current fav just like the chocolate in my mouth is the best. Each to be savored in their own way.

Just love this!

I like all of the Elm Creek series. I just finished Aloha Quilt. I can't pick a favorite, all are such good reading. Would love to win the copy.

The first book, The Quilter's Apprentice,started it all for me, and the magical journey with the Elm Creek quilters. I love the developing stories and the ability Jennifer has intermingling all the story lines over the centuries. The richness and enduring quality of the characteers always leaves me waiting for the next book - the next adventure. Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity. Judy C sure hopes she wins this one.

Marge said...

i think the one I enjoyed the most to date would be the Lost quilter. I am also working on Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt.
Thank you for the giveaway.

Trudi said...

Even here in the UK I have all her books, I'd love to win a copy of this one! My fave has to be Circle of Quilters, the first I read after finding it in a little bookshop in Boston MA! Full of memories :)

Pat said...

I love her books! I've read every one, and have "enabled" others to get the Elm Creek fever as well. This new one looks great. I'm currently reading the Cobblestone Court series by Marie Bostwick (A SIngle Thread, A Thread of Truth, and etc.) Also excellent reads.

James-Linda said...

LOVE TO WIN THIS BOOK!
THANKS FOR SHARING!

Carolyn said...

I love this series. "The Quilters Apprentice" is a favorite, as is "The Aloha Quilt", oh wait, "The Runaway Quilt" I really like these books.
Just remember Donkey in Shrek, "Pick Me!"

Andrea said...

I loved The Master Quilter - and I think that is the last one I read. So, I need to catch up, and winning this book would be a great way! I hope I win, but whoever does, will be very happy. Thanks for the giveaway.

Grandma said...

My mother in law got me started with Jennifer's books and she is not a quilter, just loves to read. I have read them all except the last few. I loved the Aloha quilt and the Runaway quilt. I had quite a few of the books and passed them around with my quilting friends for them to read. I enjoyed all of them. Thanks for offering the drawing. Diane

Irene said...

I've read all her books but I think my favourite is Round Robin. Thanks for the opportunity to win her new one!

Glenda in Florida said...

Yikes--I can't choose a favorite--I'm pretty sure I've read them all. Our librarian is good about getting them in, but the wait can be long. I would love to win this one--how did you score a pre-release copy?

Sandy said...

How can you pick one.My favorite would have to be the first one. I loved the beginning and how they made Elm Creek Quilts a reality. I would love to go on a retreat there.

Elita in GE said...

From the first novel, I was hooked! I hope that my version of the Elm Creek Quilt Retreats will help to spread the love of quilting while enjoying the beauty of the Alps. Not Southern but just as pretty. Wouldn't it be something to be reading the latest in the ECQ in the Peaks? :-)

peg said...

I have the Wedding Quilt waiting for my next read. I've enjoyed all of this series and have read them at least twice. I think my favorite would be the The Quilter's Apprentice.

I love the Elm Creek Books but I'm several behind at the moment. I'm not sure which is my favorite, I've enjoyed them all. Thanks for the chance to win the new book.

kutiequilter said...

I have read all of the Elm Creek books and enjoyed them all! I really liked the 1st one and the one where the one quilter goes to Hawaii (sorry I don't remember the name).

Shakerwood said...

I have read the first 5 or so of the series but then life got in the way (or should I say dye pots) but would love to catch back up. Winning this book might do it!

Janet said...

My favorite Elm Creek Series book is probably The Runaway Quilt also. I started out reading the series in order, but have kind of fallen off track. Maybe winning one would get me motivated again!
