Book Review: Peaks and Valleys by Emilie Richards


Peaks and Valleys by Emilie Richards

A Shenandoah Valley Album Collection

January 1, 2022

Women’s Fiction



Peaks and Valleys is comprised of 3 novellas centering around a quilting group. Some time ago, the author wrote the series Shenandoah Album Series, which has been a fan favorite. Readers had asked for more stories and Emilie has created this wonderful new collection which includes some characters from the series and a few new characters. All three novellas center around completing a quilt for a church charity.  I have not read the series and I thoroughly enjoyed this addition to it.

The quilters of the Shenandoah Community Church Bee are busy. Not only are they finishing a new quilt, Peaks and Valleys, for a charitable fundraiser, but together and individually they are working on other quilts, too. As always, each quilt tells its own heartwarming story.

Steps to the Altar

What do you do with a quilt created especially for a wedding if the wedding is cancelled? Can Rebecca and Connor find a way to solve their problems so they can finally take the steps to the altar and sleep under their wedding quilt at last?

Woven Paths

When Kate Brogan’s mother dies, Kate must drive her intellectually-challenged twin sister, Bejoy, from Florida to Virginia so her future can be decided. The journey opens new possibilities for both sisters, but will their paths diverge once they arrive at last?

Contrary Wife

Cathy Adams, bee president, refuses to go when her husband, Alf, announces he wants to leave their country home and move back to the city. When another quilter suggests Cathy create a Contrary Wife quilt, Cathy tackles the project with enthusiasm. Marriage isn’t always about compromise. Will standing firm be the key to marital happiness?
