From New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Chiaverini, a powerful and dramatic Prohibition-era story that follows the fortunes of Rosa Diaz Barclay, a woman who plunges into the unknown for the safety of her children and the love of a good but flawed man.

As the nation grapples with the strictures of Prohibition, Rosa Barclay lives on a Southern California rye farm with her volatile husband, John, who has lately found another source of income far outside the federal purview.

Mother to eight children, Rosa mourns the loss of four who succumbed to the mysterious wasting disease that is now afflicting young Ana and Miguel. Two daughters born of another father are in perfect health. When an act of violence shatters Rosa's resolve to maintain her increasingly dangerous existence, she flees with the children and her precious heirloom quilts to the mesa where she last saw her beloved mother alive.

As a flash flood traps them in a treacherous canyon, only one man is brave-or foolhardy-enough to come to their rescue: Lars Jorgenson, Rosa's first love and the father of her healthy daughters. Together they escape to Berkeley, where a leading specialist offers their only hope of saving Ana and Miguel. Here in northern California, they create new identities to protect themselves from Rosa's vengeful husband, the police who seek her for questioning, and the gangsters Lars reported to Prohibition agents-officers representing a department often as corrupt as the Mob itself. Ever mindful that his youthful alcoholism provoked Rosa to spurn him, Lars nevertheless supports Rosa's daring plan to stake their futures on a struggling Sonoma Valley vineyard-despite the recent hardships of local winemakers whose honest labors at viticulture have, through no fault of their own, become illegal.

Sonoma Rose covers what it was like to live in California during Prohibition. At the same time, it shows how a Quilt can give comfort, & a connection to our loved ones. Past, present & future generations can connect with the quilter,
when admiring their work.
This whole series of books shows how men, or women can over come hardships together. Quilting has always given comfort, peace & a way for artistic expression. It is craft anyone can do. It just all depends on how far you want to get into it. No one should ever feel inadiquate about their level or skill of quilting. Any effort is a gift of love. Jennifer Chiaverini has showed us how it happens. The one constant through the whole series are the charcters & how friendships, family, and the Quilt can influence our lives.

Chiaverini's story lines are usually gentle and yet rich with believable characters and unfolding layers. Sonoma Rose, interesting to me because I live in the heart of Sonoma wine country, requires such an overly stretched "willing suspension of disbelief" as to be uncomfortable in the reading. Murder, on one occasion even planned or instituted by the protagonist, is a rolling theme. Vengeance and fear permeate the book and added to the clumsy pace of the action seem to expose a hesitance by the author or a lack of skill to leap from her usual 'cozy' venue to one of 'thriller'. The mixture was not a successful one.

I LOVE this series -- I always buy the hardback within a week of it's availability. But, after reading 18 others in this series, I expected a whole lot more about quilting and was thoroughly disappointed. Mind you, I am NOT a quilter, but fell in love with quilting as an art (still as an outsider)when I started reading these books many years ago. There were so many opportunities she could have taken to insert quilts (even in a small way!)and didn't take them, I was almost starting to get mad!

I was also VERY disppointed there were NO references at all to the current characters. Could she not have "book-ended" the story with references/plot about the current Elm Creek Quilters? Maybe they found an old quilt? A bottle of wine? A photograph? A marriage certificate? A newspaper clipping? A receipt from the doctor? Anything! I was disappointed that was left out entirely. I wanted to see just a glimpse of our beloved characters!

None the less, it was a good story with solid characters, although a bit darker than her usual and rushed to a finish and smashed what could have been good plot/story into the short Epilogue. I was also overwhelmed by the history of the era (informative, but too heavy in some places) and the details of wine making (informative, but too many details). The story was heavy with long paragraphs with less dialogue than usual, too. Plus, I had to reach back into the back corners of my memory to figure out how these characters connected to the others from her series. All of that was ok only because I love the series so much. I'm patient and loyal. If you're not, you might get frustrated with this one (as I also did with "The Wedding Quilt" but stuck with it anyway).

Here's to the next book ("The Giving Quilt") which I know will include plenty about quilting with our long lost characters of today!!! And here's hoping she keeps writing! There are many stories still to be told!

Most of my media exposure to Prohibition centers around Chicago and other big cities where the mafia flourished, so reading this book gave me an inside look at what that era must have been like for vintners in California's beautiful Sonoma Valley. I have lived in Sonoma and it was fun to identify familiar areas in the book. I didn't live there during Prohibition but have talked to old timers who told of having the streams turn red with wine that had to be dumped. As with all good historical fiction, history comes alive when told in the context of stories about people who can express emotions and portray day-to-day living conditions of the era. Truly an interesting read.

These books are interesting. the historical ones are most interesting to me.

I was disappointed that this book had nothing to do with quilting or the characters we love. Plus, the first half was a rehash of her previous book about this family. However, the last half was an interesting historical novel about Prohibition and the wine country, and the hardships endured during that era. If this interests you, Jennifer Chiaverini does her usual excellent job in story telling.

This was a fun read in places and in others I found myself crying. It is a continuing story from the Elm Creek Quilters books. Sonoma Rose is not a part of the direct family history but rather someone that Sylvia's cousin tries to help. It is also about how the prohibition affected the vines in California. Good Reading!
I really enjoyed this book. The was hard to.read a out the beatings that Rosa suffered by her husband. It was sad that she lost children to a disease that is easy to treat now. The love that Rosa and Lars had for each other won in the end. Rosa had a hard life but but the book ended with her having a lot of happiness in her life.
