The Quilter’s Apprentice by Jennifer Chiaverini
Sarah, a newly-married young woman, is forced to re-invent herself when she moves with her husband to a small Pennsylvania town. After she meets an ornery older woman who is a master quilter, Sarah gradually discovers her calling. The first book in the comforting Elm Creek Quilts series. I’m a quilter, so these books drew me in immediately. I’ve met many non-quilters who love the series, too.
