Book 9 of the series is again similar in structure to 2 & 3. Elm Creek needs two new instructors to replace Judy & Summer who are headed to a new job at Penn State & grad school respectively (book 6 - Master Quilter) The ad goes out and 5 candidates are selected for interviews. Each has a chapter documenting their lives, how they came to be quilters, and what quilting means to them personally. Each is facing a turning point in their lives (as opposed to a crisis in 2 & 3) and see a job at Elm Creek as a new direction for them. Ultimately one is rejected, one is hired as the new cook, one is offered a job and rejects it because he thinks it'll mean leaving one of the other applicants, and the other two accept the jobs. Each candidate uses quilting to see them through the rough times in their lives and longs for the support friends like the Elm Creek quilters would be. Another good one!

Christina Moore's narration is growing on me.
