Description

Bestselling author Debbie Macomber brings us the story of several different women brought together by one knitting shop

Lydia Hoffman owns 'A Good Yarn,' the shop on Blossom Street, which has been in operation for more than a year and is thriving. Lydia's relationship with Brad continues and she remains cancer free.

Jacqueline, Carol and Alix all continue to knit. But Margaret seems on edge lately and isn't telling Lydia what is wrong. Other women start to sign up for the new sock knitting class: Elise, a retired librarian who is currently living with her daughter; Bethann Hamlin who is going through an ugly divorce and needs some distraction; and Courtney Pulanski, 16 years old and living with her widowed grandmother while her father's job transfer to South America takes effect.

Brought together by an age-old craft, these women make unexpected discoveries about themselves and each other. The discoveries lead to love, to friendship and acceptance, to laughter and dreams.

      • content: Lydia Hoffman opens a knitting shop where she also holds knitting classes. Participants include Eloise, a retired librarian, Courtney, a lonely teenager, and Bethanne, a single mother. Narrator Linda Emond imbues this audio with a sense of realism as her carefully modulated pitch changes reflect the various characters and their range of emotions. Emond provides each character with a distinctive voice, including those of Lydia's boyfriend, Brad, with his mellifluous tone, and Eloise's ex-husband, Maverick, who exudes charm with every word. Emond's expert storytelling highlights each character's ability to reinvent him or herself. The narrator's smooth, well-tempered pacing establishes this audio as an experience to be savored.

        April 11, 2005
        Macomber revisits the cozy Seattle yarn store of 2004's The Shop on Blossom Street
        in another heartfelt tale of crafts and camaraderie. After a slow beginning, this sequel clips along satisfyingly, as shop owner Lydia, a cancer survivor, and her no-nonsense sister, Margaret, meet three new and conveniently quite different friends and bond over the complications of life. Overweight, depressed teenager Courtney Pulanski has found herself plopped into a new town for her senior year, living with her grandma while her dad works in Brazil. Bethanne Hamlin, a recent divorcée, and Elise Beaumont, who's been single for years, are both still suffering from their broken marriages. Serving as sounding boards and sources of endless support for each other, the women find friendship and, of course, resolution for their problems (the latter a little too easily). Readers will miss The Shop on Blossom Street
        's spirited Jacqueline, who plays a minor role here, and a few things—like the character of Elise's ex-husband, Maverick—strain credibility. But the author's trademark warm treatment of the lives of women will satisfy her readers. Despite occasional draughts of treacle and a too-easy denouement, this should be another Macomber bestseller.

In the year since it opened, A Good Yarn has thrived - and so has Lydia Hoffman, the owner. A lot of that is due to Brad Goetz. But when Brad's ex-wife reappears, Lydia is suddenly afraid to trust her newfound happiness. Elise Beaumont joins one of Lydia's popular knitting classes. Living with her daughter, Aurora, Elise learns that her onetime husband plans to visit and that Aurora wants a relationship with her father, regardless of how Elise feels about him. Bethanne Hamlin is facing the fallout from a divorce and joins the knitting class as the first step in her effort to recover a sense of dignity and hope. Courtney Pulanski is a depressed and overweight teenager. She's staying with her grandmother, who's trying to help by taking her to the knitting class at A Good Yarn.
