A Good Yarn

Customer Reviews:

A treasure! Very heartwarming!

By Sharon Galligar Chance - April 29, 2005

There's something so soothing about knitting - the sweet clicking of needles weaving yarn into items made with love. It's a very calming hobby and it's no wonder that the beloved craft has made a resurgence in popularity. So it makes perfect sense for best selling author Debbie Macomber to combine her love of knitting and writing as she takes her readers on a trip back to revisit the lovely little yarn shop on Blossom Street in her latest novel, "A Good Yarn."

Lydia Hoffman opened her shop, A Good Yarn, a year ago as a celebration in her life of overcoming cancer twice in her young life. The shop was met with great success, and Lydia had found contentment in her life as she taught her beloved knitting classes and renewed her friendship with her sister Margaret who came to work with her. She also found love with deliveryman Brad Goetz and they planned to be married one day soon.

But life has a way of throwing monkey-wrenches into the best lives, and Lydia soon... read more

She's done it again!

By Tonya Speelman "Hoarder of books" - July 22, 2005

This book just left right off and I couldn't have been more pleased. Truly money well spent on such a wonderful story about friendships, love, and family. Although once again you can guess for the most part what is going to happen, there are a few surprises.

This book tells us what is going on with Lydia and Brad, a little bit about our first three friends and of course Margaret. This book deals quite a bit more about Margaret in fact. The sisterly bond strengthens and parents get older.

We also meet three new people, whom of course become the best of friends, all the while dealing with life's curve balls.

Enjoy!

No one does Women's Fiction better!

By JJ Stark - May 20, 2005

Debbie Macomber is one my favorite authors. No one can write about women, for women better (in my opinion!!). A GOOD YARN is no different from any of her other books on this subject. It's not her best novel (BETWEEN FRIENDS has that honor!), but it's certainly a pleasant read, and would make the perfect "beach companion" or poolside read this summer.

The book is a sequel (or follow-up) to last year's SHOP ON BLOSSOM STREET, with the story revolving aroud the main character and shop's owner, Lydia. This year's knitting class teaches us how to make a pair of socks (an actual pattern is included inside the book), while Lydia meets and becomes friends with a new group of three women. The three characters from last year's book (students from her first knitting class) make "cameo" appearances, but the story focuses on Lydia and her three new students.

Written from the point of view of all four characters, the chapters once again alternate between narrators... read more
