Jennifer Chiaverini's newest Elm Creek Quilts novel, SONOMA ROSE

Friday, Feb 24th  (or the 17th)work for you for a PR post/giveaway where you send the copy directly to the winner

Last year, Jennifer Chiaverini’s The Wedding Quiltbecame a huge success and New York Times bestseller, thanks in part to quilt-lovers like you! I was hoping you would consider reviewing or hosting a giveaway on your website of her newest novel in the Elm Creek Quilts series, SONOMA ROSE(on-sale 2/21).
Jennifer has always been praised for her ability to write historical and present-day fiction with equal skill. While her last novel was set in modern times, Sonoma Rose tells the story of a young mother's heroic journey in Prohibition-era America.
Rosa Diaz Barclay is touched by the criminality surrounding Prohibition when she discovers that her husband, John, has given over the duties of their Southern California rye farm in favor of bootlegging. Fearing the safety of her four children, Rosa flees, carrying only a case of John’s ill-begotten cash and her mother’s two quilts. Lars Jorgensen, her true love and the father of two of her children, aids in her escape, and together the six travel north to San Francisco. Under assumed names, they are hired to work at a Sonoma vineyard, where Rosa creates a personal and professional identity that she would never have dared imagine at the opening of her tale, and one that brings great honor-and beauty-to all who surround her.
