The Quilter's Apprentice
by Jennifer Chiaverini
When Sarah McClure moves with her husband to Waterford, Pennsylvania in search of work, she ends up at Elm Creek Manor, where the reclusive owner, Syliva Compson, not only gives her work but begins sharing her gift for quilting also.
As the two women quilt together, the threads of Sylvia's long life begin to appear as she shares her stories of pain, love, and tragedy, and Sarah searches for a way to bring the old manor, and its owner, back to life again.
This is a squeaky clean book! There was one instance of taking the Lord's name in vain, but I didn't notice anything else besides that. This is a good "curl up in bed with a book" read.
clean book, clean book reviews, clean fiction, clean reads
