Sonoma Rose book giveaway and More!

Jennifer Chiaverini is going all out this year with sharing more stories from the Elm Creek Quilters. Sonoma Rose brings more history and adventure for characters we have previously met in The Quilter's Homecoming. This story tells about Rosa's courageous journey to save her family, and herself through personal struggles and the challenges faced in the Sonoma wine country of northern California during the Prohibition era. As in many of her books, Jennifer reveals history and its impacts in both the past and present settings.
Two quilts are featured in these stories. The Road to Triumph Ranch and Arboles Valley Star are the quilts that Rosa cherishes and includes among her precious items when running from trouble. In real life, these quilts were inspired by antique quilts discovered in the Stagecoach Inn Museum in Newbury Park, California. Pictures of quilt blocks are included inside the book.
So for a chance to win a copy of this richly charactered book, leave a comment here on this post.  For an extra chance to win, please post and share the news on your own blog and leave a second comment here as well. 
And yet another chance to win a copy of Sonoma Rose can be found by visiting Lori at Humble Quilts. She is also reviewing this book and hosting a giveaway!
I will be drawing the name of the Luckypup Quilter winner next Monday, February 27th, 2012.
For yet another book giveaway, visit Sweet Pea Quilting and Creations for a great review and peak into Back to Charm School .
I think it is a week full of book giveaways. So happy blog hopping :-)
