Book - A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber

I bought this book in paperback in the summer of 2006 and finally read it in August. This book is a sequel to the book I had already read (which I got at the library) - "The Shop on Blossom Street". The review for that book is also here on this website.

This book is very similar to the first one, same format, and many of the same characters. It has the same heartwarming stories, 4 women who meet for a knitting class, and you follow each of their stories in a separate chapter and see how their situation unfolds. It is just as enjoyable of a read as the first one, and I really enjoyed it.

Here's a blurb from the Barnes and Noble website about this book: "Lydia Hoffman owns the shop on Blossom Street. In the year since it opened, A Good Yarn has thrived -- and so has Lydia. 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. Three women join Lydia's newest class. Elisa Beaumont, retired and bitterly divorced, learns that her onetime husband is reentering her life. Bethanne Hamlin is facing the fallout from a much more recent divorce. And Courtney Pulanski is a depressed and overweight teenager, whose grandmother's idea of helping her is to drag her to seniors' swim sessions -- and to the knitting class at A Good Yarn."

I enjoyed this book and would recommend both it and the previous one to anyone to read. Good women's fiction. I rate this book an 8 out of 10.
