More social history than quilting
I have read several of Chiaverini's Elm Creek Quilters series books, and expected this one to be similar. It wasn't. The world of the book is the American Civil War, in a community where loyalties are divided. The production of an opportunity quilt and subsequent publication of patterns is an interesting but minor subplot. For the most part, however, the story is about the lives of brothers, lovers, and husbands at war and in the prison camps, and the communication between women and their soldiers. Once I gave in to the author's idea for the book, rather than mine, I found it every bit as interesting and rewarding as the others.
