Publisher's Summary

You might have heard about a wonderful little yarn store in downtown Seattle. Debbie Macomber can take you there! 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.
Four women, brought together by the craft of knitting, find companionship and comfort in each other. Who would've thought that knitting socks could change your life?

a good yarn

A really fun book. Visiting old friends and making new friends. It is a feel-good book. Want to listen until the last page!! And then wonder how long before the next installment.

A Nice Story

Although I'm usually the Thriller type, I got this book because of the knitting content - yes, I knit socks!!! A nice, pleasant story with nothing to offend anyone & a happy ending too!! I would recommend this book to readers of light fiction who just want to relax & be entertained.

As good as the first book

I absolutely loved Alix from book one, and interesting as the new characters are, none appeals me like Alix. She and the other characters from book one are back as guests in book two, but we have three new main characters.

Elise is a retired librarian, and struggling to fill the hours. Bethanne is struggling with her recent divorce and teenaged daughter. Courtney is struggling with her weight and being the new girl in town. And Lydia and her family have a new set of problems.

We know from the beginning that they will all find their solutions in each other and in knitting, but it's nice to travel the journey with them.
