The Quilter's Legacy by Jennifer Chiaverini

When precious heirloom quilts hand-stitched by her mother turn up missing from the attic of Elm Creek Manor, Sylvia Bergstrom Compson resolves to find them. Her quest leads her to unexpected places, where offers of assistance are not always what they seem. From scant resources — journal entries, receipts, and her own fading memories — she pieces together clues, then queries quilting friends from around the world. As the search continues, revelations surface about her mother, Eleanor Lockwood, who died in , when Sylvia was only a child. Burdened with poor health and distant parents, Eleanor Lockwood defied her family by marrying for love. Far from her Manhattan home, she embraced her new life among the Bergstroms — but although warmth and affection surrounded Eleanor at last, the Bergstroms could not escape the tragedies of their times. As Sylvia recovers some of the missing quilts and accepts others as lost forever, she reflects on the woman her mother was and mourns the woman she never knew.
