The Runaway Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini

The Runaway Quilt
by Jennifer Chiaverini

ISBN-10: 0452283981

Book 4 in the Elm Creek Quilts Series

This volume in the series finds Sylvia going through the attic and finding antique quilts and journal of her ancestor, Gerda, which describes the Civil War ear and the family's role in the Underground Railway and the use of quilts to that end.

In this volume, we learn a great deal about the history of the family and Elm Creek Manor and the heritage of quilts throughout the country.

This is a fascinating look at a little known chapter in history.
