Back Cover Blurb:
When Lydia Hoffman, a cancer survivor and owner of A Good Yarn, starts a knitting class for her patrons, she forms a special friendship and bond with three extraordinary women--Jacqueline, Carol, and Alix--and together they share laughter, heartbreak, and dreams.
I learned a great deal about yarn and knitting throughout. It was built right into the story, intrinsic to the lives of the characters. I was astounded by the way this was so seamlessly worked into the tale. It definitely added extra depth to the tale for me. Macomber not only made it interesting, but she also made me want to give it a try.
This novel is full of lifelike characters that make their way into your heart. They’re the type of people that once you meet them, you won’t ever forget them. I enjoyed how Macomber showed the four different characters’ perspectives. The intertwining stories alongside each other were amazing. I will admit that there were a couple that I disliked at the beginning, but throughout the novel they grew on me.
This novel was a fantastic start to Macombers Blossom Street series. She drew me into this world and I can’t wait to go back.
