A New York Times Bestseller -- 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.

This is a good historical look at women in the community of Elm Creek and how they coped with their loved ones serving in the Civil War. Different from Chiaverini's other Elm Creek novels, but entertaining just the same.

Not up to par for Jennifer Chiaverini, quite boring except for civil war buffs
