In the Quilter's Homecoming, there is a roaring twenties adventure. When Sylvia was a child she had a favorite cousin, Elizabeth Bergstrom, whom she always, always wanted to spend all her time with whenever she was at Elm Creek Manor. However, Elizabeth was in love with a neighbor, Henry Nelson. Sylvia was upset when Elizabeth and Henry were to marry. She tried her best to make Henry not like Elizabeth. She was unkind to Henry to say the least.
Henry had purchased a ranch, Triumph Ranch, in California. He and Elizabeth were off to California after they married to start a new life. Upon reaching their destination, Henry and Elizabeth discover they were scammed. There was no such place as Triumph Ranch. Where upon they need to get jobs. They each found a position at the Jorgenson farm; Henry to work the fields and the orchard and Elizabeth to help in the house.
Elizabeth had befriended the daughter-in-law of the Jorgenson's and before long also made friends with Rosa Diaz Barclay, a neighbor. Rosa's life was not a pretty one, having lost a number of children to a genetic disease and an abusive husband.
Elizabeth finds out that Rosa's first love was not her present husband, but a man from her past- a Jorgenson. Rosa's family had been against the Jorgenson boy and wanted Rosa to marry John Barclay.
A lot happens to Rosa and her family. And, there are many surprises ahead for Elizabeth and Henry also.
