The Sugar Camp Quilt

I read The Sugar Camp Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini yesterday.  It is the first book by Chiaverini that I have read, but am pretty certain I will read more in the Elm Creek Quilts series.  This book, set in pre-Civil War days, tells the story of Dorothea Granger becoming an adult.  She lives with her mother, father, and uncle on her uncle's farm.  Dorothea and her parents are abolitionists.  As Dorothea becomes involved in the community she discovers that not everyone in the free state of Pennsylvania is against slavery. Have you read any of Chiaverini's books?
