In 1862, the men of Water's Ford, Pennsylvania, rally to President Lincoln's call while Dorothea Granger marshals her friends to "wield their needles for the Union." Meanwhile, Anneke Bergstrom hides the shame she feels for her husband's pacifism; gifted writer Gerda Bergstrom takes on local Southern sympathizers in the pages of the Water's Ford Register; and Constance Wright struggles to help her husband gain entry to the Union Army-despite the color of his skin. As the women work, hope, and pray, the men they love confront loneliness, boredom, and danger on the battlefield. But the women of the sewing circle also forge a new independence that will forever alter the patchwork of life in the Elm Creek Valley.
"Fascinating . . . We seldom think beyond the battles and the generals, but the story of the home [front] is a compelling one. Although we might know how the big picture turned out, the individual stories presented here are rivetingly new." Romantic Times

The insight into the affect of the civil war at the level of all people in all walks of life was very interesting and gave me thoughts of a way of life I had not thought of.

I was so happy to be reunited with some old friends, Gerda, Hans, Jonathan, Dorothea, and many others, as I jumped into the book. I have never been one who enjoys history but I must say that this novel kept me interested and I think it's all because we now live outside of Richmond, Virginia and many of the places mentioned in the book are places with which I am now familiar. The Union Quilters is a story of determination, perseverance, and love.
If you haven't read all of the series yet, make sure you read "The Sugar Camp Quilt" before this one. I can't wait until November when "The Wedding Quilt" is released.
