One thought on “Sonoma Rose

  1. Jackie

    I probably shouldn't even rate this with stars since I have decided not to finish this book and send it on its way back to the library. I have been a fan of Mrs. Chiaverini's work since I read her first book. I've loved her characters, the setting, the association with quilting - another interest of mine - and the stories she weaves. Somehow with this one I believe Mrs. Chiaverini has gone far astray.Life is full of choices and consequences. Our choices often determine the consequences, sometime [...]

  2. Jan

    This book was a huge disappointment. First of all it isn't a book about quilts or quilt-loving people, like all the rest have been. Second, the heroine was a moronic idiot. She didn't have any character at all. Rose has a childhood friend who she refuses to marry because he drinks too much. So, instead she ends up marrying a wife-beater. Her first and fifth child come from her childhood, drunk-but-still-a-good-man sweetheart. The other six children have celiac disease and it takes her forever to [...]

  3. LORI CASWELL

    What a Beautiful Cover!In previous editions we were reminded that some of Sylvia Berstrom’s relatives had migrated to California. Sonoma Rose starts with a little of that history, picking up where The Quilter’s Homecoming, that was published in 2007 left off.We meet Elizabeth Bergstrom Nelson’s friend, Rosa Diaz as the country is coping with all the restrictions of Prohibition. Mother to eight children, Rosa mourns the loss of four who succumbed to the mysterious wasting disease currently [...]

    As usual, Jennifer Chiaverini wrote another wonderful story to add to the Elm Creek Quilts series. This book follows The Quilter's Homecoming where we were left with a cliffhanger about Rosa and her children who run away from an abusive husband/father in the midst of a violent rain storm. In Sonoma Rose we get the history of Rosa, John, and Lars relationship and how Rosa married John instead of Lars, and furthermore why she stays with John even though he beats her.This book takes place during th [...]

  5. Terri

    Calling this an Elm Creek Quilts novel is a bit of a stretch. The connection to previous Elm Creek Quilt novels is tenuous, at best, and any mention of actual quilting seems thrown in as an afterthought. The storyline is interesting, but I couldn't work up much empathy for the main character. Chiaverini's main characters are usually women, often with flaws, but redeemed by their strengths and resourcefulness. The main character in this book seemed to be shaped by her circumstances more than by t [...]

  6. Audra (Unabridged Chick)

    Sadly, this was a DNF for me. I tried about three times to get in to the story, employing my usual tactic of reading 100 pages in before giving up. In this case, I just didn't resonate with the characters or writing style, despite the book's interesting setting and potentially fun premise.The book doesn't open with a date, so I had to guess when this is set -- through Rosa's discovery of a tommy gun and liquor casks it's clear the setting is sometime during the Prohibition -- but whether that's [...]

  7. Julie

    I've had this book on my shelf for quite some time. I had procrastinated a little, although I love this author, the story set in California previously wasn't my favorite. However, this story was an off-shoot of some of the characters in that earlier book (The Quilter's Homecoming) and I really liked it. I love the historical references and education on the plight of the vineyards during the Prohibition Era. Really enjoyable read.

  8. Donna

    Jennifer Chiaverini has written another wonderful Elm Creek Quilts novel.Rosa Diaz Barclay lives on a rye farm in Southern California with her very abusive husband, John. John is also the postmaster and is responsible for getting the mail to all the nearby families. He is, as it looks, into some shady business elsewhere other than his farm. Rosa and John have been parents to 8 children, 4 of whom succumbed to a mysterious disease. Rosa is forever asking John to let her take the sick children rem [...]

  9. Melissa

    I've read all the Elm Creek Quilt books, in order. That being said, it isn't necessary to do that when reading this book. I'm not actually sure why this one is tagged as an Elm Creek Quilts novel at all. Except for a slight relation to one of the other characters, which wasn't even presented as important, this book was so far from an Elm Creek Quilts novel to be considered one at all.Rose (aka Rosa) has always been in love with Lars. But because of his drinking and other issues that arise with t [...]

  10. Alexis Villery

    Rosa Barclay has faced heartache after heartache. She loses her childhood love because a family feud that she wants no part of and is forced into a loveless marriage. The marriage soon falls apart when her husband results to violence and later discovers her betrayal. Rosa is forced to flee the only home she knows to save herself and her four remaining children. Not only does she continue to look over her shoulder for the abusive husband who is sure to come after here, but she must hurry to find [...]

  11. Joyce

    In the book Sonoma Rose, Jennifer Chiaverini has switched from the Elm Creek quilters but there is still a link to them because one of the characters in this novel is related to the founder of the Elm Creek Quilts. This novel takes the reader to California where Elizabeth Nelson had moved to after leaving Pennsylvania and unfolds the story of Rosa Diaz Barclay. Rosa's story begins as a tragic one of marrying a man she doesn't love who ends up being terribly abusive to her and passes on a gene to [...]

  12. Aislynn

    I was thrilled when I received a copy of this book I did a happy dance. Jennifer's novels are easily the best series I've had the pleasure of reading. They are so filled with amazing women, great historical details and the type of story that you just can't put down.For Rosa, life isn't pleasant. She is tied to an abusive husband, and only stays because she feels she has no where else to turn. When events suddenly change and she has to run to protect herself and her children. With the help of lon [...]

  13. Kathleen Dixon

    This is a nice novel that could with just a few tweaks stand alone from the Elm Creek Quilts series. On the other hand, it gives a nice completion to a side-story told in an earlier book, and will no doubt provide a bit of a segué to a coming-up story where we learn the continuing story of Elizabeth, Sylvia's cousin. And for that you need to have been following the series.Because this relies on a earlier story but needs to be complete in itself, there are several pieces of repetition. This is o [...]

  14. Lisa

    This book involves quilting only tangentially, but is a continuation of some story threads (pun intended) from The Quilter's Homecoming. The book is not always easy to read, as it describes spouse abuse and the unhappy family life it creates, but those episodes are told in flashback and are tolerable even for a reader sensitive to the subject. Chiaverini presents a more complex moral context than in any of her other books, with bad decisions leading to more bad decisions, good decisions being th [...]

  15. Andrea Guy

    This is a fantastic book, the kind that it is hard to put down once you start. It is about family, prohibition, love and quilts.From the get go, Jennifer's writing pulls you in. There's so much drama with Rosa's family, sick children, an abusive husband, who just happens to be part of a bootlegging operation, and the lover she should have married but didn't.You want good things to happen to Rosa, because she deserves them, but no life is complete without struggles. It is just so hard to believe [...]

  16. San Frazier

    This book was so good I am so happy that I have a new beloved author on my liste story presents following your heart to the fullest. It was so inspiring and fun.It just brings to the forefront how as women we can be so self sacrificing thinking we are doing the right thing but, guess what we are not always right. Sometimes it is not good to stay in a relationship to Quote "for the kids". how are we teaching them to have loving trusting relationships if they see use hurting and miserable or if we [...]

  17. Julie Barrett

    Sonoma Rose This part of the quilt series is about Rosa in CA and she's had enough abuse and she and the children are fleeing along with John's strongbox. Her husband did not like her parents and they were not allowed at family events.She grabs the family quilts and photos and she knows John will follow her to the mesa, but he doesn't know of the cavesHer childhood friend Lars might be able to help save her and the children. Lots of secrets as to who the father is of the children but he just wan [...]

  18. Ritu

    This is an average book written by Jennifer Chiaverini. I have been a fan of all her Elm Creek books - but this book was not as authentic and believable as Jennifer's previous book. Mark my words - the writing was good - but the storyline, the plot was weak and very childish. Bare outline - Rosa was in love with her high school sweetheart and got pregnant. Due to their respecive family feuds, she settled into marrying another man. Her husband discovers after the birth of their daughter that he w [...]

  19. Nathalie S

    Another powerful book by Jennifer Chiaverini. Here we learn the "rest of the story" as it were of Rosa Diaz Barclay and Lars Jorgenson who had disappeared without trace in another book. This takes place during Prohibition--I knew a little about it but it was interesting to hear the point of view of the wine growers and how this affected so many lives of the people of the Sonoma Valley, near Santa Rosa. I have visited this beautiful area several times and it was fun to "revisit" Glen Ellen, Santa [...]

  20. Robyn Echols

    Jennifer Chiaverini is one of my all-time favorite authors. This book is as great as the other fiction by this author I have read, which I think is all of them. I love her storylines, the ties to her fictional family, and the way she works quilts into her stories. This book explores some morally difficult situations and choices, and, although I cannot condone everything that was done, I felt the author portrayed the situations sensitively and in a manner that inspired empathy. I definitely recom [...]

  21. Connie

    Chiaverini has shifted the geographical focus of "Elm Street Quilts" to the West Coast of the US. I really enjoyed learning about how California wine growers were impacted by Prohibition. I also was excited to learn what had happened to the long-lost cousins, Henry and Elizabeth. At first the geographic shift and focus on new characters was a bit disconcerting but after a few chapters, I had "moved on" and had accepted the new ones.Great book for those who enjoy historical fiction and Chiaverini [...]

  22. Sandra

    This is the nineteenth book in the quilting series written by Chiaverini and answers some of the mysteries left in the book "The Quilter's Homecoming". There is also an interesting take on prohibition which was too one-sided, unfortunately. It did show that trying to legislate "clean living" without changing hearts is quite often a losing proposition.

  23. Carolyn

    Maybe 2.5 stars. Too much repetitive angst and too many threads. I did enjoy reading about prohibition and its affect on winemakers in California.

  24. Karin

    I liked it well enough that three stars seems cruel. I always learn some history from Jennifer's books.

  25. Vanessa

    This was a lovely book to read. Set away from Elm Creek but with a small quilting theme it was a different path to go diwn which I loved. Thanks Jennifer. Cant wait for another good book from you.

  26. Tracey

    Received from Netgalley for review, thank you. I put in a request for the book based on the synopsis; this was a little outside of my usual well-worn paths, in a few ways. I've read little in this setting, time or place or cultural, and little enough in this broad genre, and I was attracted to the idea of a Prohibition-era vineyard. It's an aspect of that time in history I'd never considered – the incredible tight spot family vineyards were placed in by that national mistake. I know I tend to [...]

  27. Elaine Tucker

    Very good story, different than Jennifer's other books. I found it quite interesting and informative.Rosa has had many children, half of them have died. We do find out what the cause was. Story takes place in the 1920s. Things were hard on people, The Great Depression and Prohibition, many lost their jobs, their businesses, all across the country. Some turned into Bootleggers just to survive and put food on the table and a roof over their head.I received this book as a gift and have enjoyed it v [...]

  28. Renata

    More like a 2.5. Can't believe this is the next to the last book in the series and it dealt with an obscure character from many books ago who I felt had closure. Too many pages for the storyline and never gelled with Rosa but as always Jennifer sure knows how to do her research on a topic (winemaking and prohibition in this case). I hope the last book is fantastic so I have closure after 20 books!

  29. Dixie Deen

    I have enjoyed all the Elm Creek Quilt books. This one was about a family which was not in any of the other books but continued the quilt theme in a positive and heart warming way. I found the information about Prohibition and the way it affected the wineries and the families who depended upon them very interesting.

  30. Jean

    An interesting read about life in the era of Prohibition and the challenges that women faced during that time. Only a thread of connection to the previous Elm Creek Novels - stands alone without having read the others. You can tell that Ms. Chiaverini carefully researches historical aspects of her books. It was a little bit 'too neatly' resolved, but held my interest throughout.
