Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker (2013)

English
3.35 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This is a two and a half star book. I wanted to read it and was looking forward to a different book than the one written. This was a history mostly of Mrs. Lincoln. I wanted to know about the dressmaker. It was a historical fiction book and focused almost entirely on the hist...

review 1: Another fabulous read by Jennifer Chiaverini! For all the Civil War era books that I've read, tales of espionage, especially at the peril of women (on either side) is one that I have haven't read much of. The long, anxious months (years really), and the terrible waiting... wait...

review 1: Well researched book about a woman from Virginia whose political views side with the North. She ends up fighting convention to work in a Union prisoner of war camp. While the author knows her history, it feels as though the dialog is just a way to present it. Stilted, and forced,...

review 1: I think Mrs. Chiaverini has gotten tired of our Elm Creek Quilters. I didn't enjoy the time jump, but it was the inconsistencies that killed it for me. If you're going to write 20 books with intertwining characters and stories then you should keep notes because we will notice wh...

review 1: I have read many books about President Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln. In fact, I read a Mary Todd Lincoln book for children so many times in grade school the cute librarian asked me to read other women biographies. Jennifer Chiavarini did a beautiful job capturing the personalit...
Sonoma Rose (2012)

review 1: This is one of those books which makes me wish I could give half stars, in which case it would be two and a half. Since I can't, it gets rounded down to two. It was an OK story, which kept my interest, but it's far more of a stand-alone book rather than part of a series. The c...

review 1: While I have been disappointed by other Chiaverini novels, this one was a pleasant surprise. I am writing a novel set in slave-holding South Carolina myself, so I know a great deal about this time and place; but I think Chiaverini has managed to express the tragedy of an enslaved...

review 1: The day after Thanksgiving, the Elm Creek Quilters gather for a marathon quilting session, and think about their lives up to the current point. Cook Anna is at a crux in her relationship with best friend Jeremy, who has driven off in a storm to see his girlfriend many states away...

review 1: Although Bonnie is by far not my favourite character in this series, I did enjoy this one about her trip to Hawaii, to help her college friend set up a quilt camp in her newly acquired B&B. Bonnie has quite the holier than thou approach to almost everything, which does almost cos...

review 1: I chose this book from the library shelf for no other reason than the word "aloha" in the title; I like to read books about or set in Hawaii. I had not read any of the other books in this series and now, having read this one, I probably won't. The main character, Bonnie, I found ...
