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. From scant resources -- journal entries, receipts, and her own fading memories -- she pieces together clues, then queries quilting friends from around the world. When dozens of leads arrive via the Internet, Sylvia and her fiancé, Andrew, embark on a nationwide investigation of antiques shops and quilt museums. Sylvia's quest leads her to unexpected places, where offers of assistance are not always what they seem. As the search continues, revelations surface about her mother, Eleanor Lockwood, who died in 1930, 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.

This message is for Trish, my friend who works with the Red Carpet at TSC. Trish is the very nice person who keeps us oldies from going crazy by helping us with library books! My concern is that I do not understand how to check out books on the new system?? I placed some audio books on hold because I could not figure out how to check them out and place them on the Red Carpet delivery system.

Trish, could you please help me? I have several on hold. I would like four or five at a time as this is pretty much all I listen to when awake and sewing/cooking. Thank you for all you do for me and countless others. You are a gem.
