by Jennifer Chiaverini
Jennifer Chiaverini’s newest book, “Sonoma Rose”. I’ve long been a fan of all of Jennifer Chiaverini’s books. They are always fun to read and given the fact that quilts are always somehow included in the story-lines, the books serve as sewing inspiration for me. Here is a summary to whet your appetite:
“Rosa Diaz Barclay is touched by the criminality surrounding Prohibition when she discovers that her husband, John, has given over the duties of their Southern California rye farm in favor of bootlegging. Fearing the safety of her four children, Rosa flees, carrying only a case of John’s ill-begotten cash and her mother’s two quilts. Lars Jorgensen, her true love and the father of two of her children, aids in her escape, and together the six travel north to San Francisco. Under assumed names, they are hired to work at a Sonoma vineyard, where Rosa creates a personal and professional identity that she would never have dared imagine at the opening of her tale, and one that brings great honor-and beauty-to all who surround her.”
“Chiaverini has an impressive ability to bring a time and place alive, showcasing the effects of Prohibition on farmers in Sonoma Valley. ”
— Romantic Times
“[An] emotionally compelling tale.”
“Chiaverini does an excellent job of describing the lush landscapes of California wine country, while simultaneously painting a touching portrait of the difficulties faced by farming families who must tend to one another, as well as the earth.”
