The Christmas Boutique by Jennifer Chiaverini


An accident has damaged the local church that was going to host the annual Christmas Boutique fundraiser.  In order to make it so the fundraiser will  happen, Sylvia Bergstrom Compson allows her family manor to be used for the event.  The manor has an interesting history and is currently being used for the Elm Creek Quilt Camp.  Will the ladies be able to get the manor ready in time to host a successful Christmas Boutique?

 I enjoyed this book.  This was a good story about a variety of different lady quilters that are all different ages and how they came to love quilting.  It also shares the trials and the tribulations in their lives.  This novel is part of the Elm Creek Quilt series, but I haven’t read any of the other books in the series.  Each chapter was about a specific woman and it gave enough background for me to understand the character and what was going on in the story.  I really loved the detail and learning about each character.  I would love to read more of this series.


Favorite Quotes:

“If you brood over the past, you can’t enjoy the present or the future.”

 “As long as Elm Creek Manor stood, compassion and generosity would infuse every class taught, every meal shared, and every story shared within its gray stone walls, not only at Christmas, but every day, year after year.

 Overall, The Christmas Boutique is a warm Christmas tale filled with quilting and interesting women.
