What happened to the language?

What did you like best about Sonoma Rose? What did you like least?

I enjoyed listening to Sonoma Rose as I have all of the Elm Creek Quilter series. It has an interesting plot line and keeps you turning the pages. However Ms. Chiaverini has decided to add offensive language in the style of so many other books today. This saddens me because I have always enjoyed her books and felt safe reading them because I knew she wasn't going to throw offensive words in my face as I read. I would recommend her other books in the series but not this one because of the language and the immorality that was presented in a positive light.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed learning about the California wine industry, especially the care of the vineyards, and how proabition put these families livlihoods in jeopordy. She presented the moral tension between keeping this new law and feeding your family very well.

What does Christina Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is a good narrator and does voices wonderfully.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I don't know. I wouldn't like the message it would send that immorality is justified by the circumstances.

Any additional comments?

I love the Elm Creek Quilter series and am hoping she will write a book telling us what happened to Elizabeth. Why did she stop writing to Sylvia?
