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 finds herself dealing with heartache as Brad announces that he is back on speaking terms with his ex-wife. As Lydia reels from this crisis-of-the-heart, her sister Margaret is also dealing with problems in her own homelife, and their mother is beginning to experience declining health problems that keep both sisters busy dealing with her care. But as always, her optimism for life, her love for and of family and friends, and her knitting carry Lydia through this rough bump in her life.

Customers of Lydia's shop flock to her store to find the best yarns and advice on knitting, but they also find warmth and friendship among the threads.

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!

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 (which is actually typical for a Debbie Macomber novel). While this can become confusing or even a nuisance under the pen of other writers, Debbie Macomber does it flawlessly and effortlessly, so that readers get to know each character on an intimate level, and can actually see themselves becoming with friends with one or all of all of the book's main characters.

Lydia is the shop owner and the one who brings these women together (through her knitting classes which she offers at her shop). After battling illness for most of her life, she's given a clean bill of health and finally found, what she believes is true love with Brad (the handsome UPS guy!) and has made a connection with & become much closer to her sister, whom she has battled with for nearly as long as she's battled her illness.

I love all of Debbie's books - they are sweet, and there are almost always happy endings. There isn't gratuitious sex or violence, and while most of the characters lead charmed lives, in that everything turns out for the best for them, it doesn't detract from the books' essential appeal. Haven't we all wished that our problems would be neatly resolved in 200 pages or less? While not a fan of romances in general, I like this author's books, because they are a nice blend of life as it is, and life as we wish it would be. I also like the way friendships among women are portrayed. They have real sustainable connections to each other, and are a great support system, and a great comfort to each other. Real life isn't always like that; these women aren't competing with each other, they aren't pulling the rug out from under each other, they are rooting for each other. That's how friends ought to be. The books are idealized versions of reality, but these days, we all need a good fairy tale to cuddle up with. The characters remind us of people we have known, and the dialogue, while not sparkling or brilliant, is good. She has an eye and ear for what makes a character real, and they are living, breathing companions in your fictional travels. I enjoy the serial aspect of the Cedar Cove books; they go on, life goes on, and in every book you meet old friends and acquaintances again, and you catch up on their lives. It was nice to meet Lydia and her sister again, and to meet the new group in the knitting class. I hope there are many more sequels in this series. It's easy to care about these characters, and you want to know what happens to them, and you really do want them to be happy. These books are as comfortable as an old shoe, and just perfect for a read on a rainy day. Or a sunny day.Read more ›
