Great Read - a True Feel Good series!!

I love how this series is progressing - it is a true feel good read that keeps you wanting to know what happens next. The last books original characters are streamed throughout which is wonderful. I often read a book and wonder, what happened to them "after" the last chapter - this series fills that curiosity!!

    A nice escape from reality

    Reading a Debbie Macomber book is like making a group of new friends that stay with you, and you would like to have as apart of your daily life forever. It is so difficult to end a book and not to have the characters and the story to look forward to each day.

    accurate title

    When Lydia Hoffman was a teen she conquered breast cancer but though chemo helped, it was the woman in the next treatment chair who gave her the needed edge; she learned to knit. Eventually, she opened up a shop A GOOD YARN about a year ago that has done well and has met a man Brad Goetz she likes, but his former wife is back in town. --- One of Lydia¿s students, retired librarian Elise Beaumont lives with her daughter Aurora as her ex husband gambler Marvin the 'Maverick¿ lost everything they possessed. The two women battle over whether Aurora should allow her father into her life.--- Another pupil Bethanne Hamlin faces a midlife crisis since her spouse left her and their teens for another woman. Her confidence is shattered.--- Finally overweight teen Courtney Pulanski is depressed that her grandmother intercedes in her life by dragging her to senior citizen events like knitting. She wants nothing to do with the old losers in the class.--- The sequel to THE SHOP ON BLOSSOM STREET is A GOOD YARN that contemporary women¿s fiction readers will appreciate. The characters are fully developed so that the audience feels their pain and fear as they go through the phases of a group until they ¿perform¿ by helping each other gain self esteem by the high regard they begin to display to one another. Though the viewpoint between the four prime characters can be difficult to follow, readers will observe their differences and commonality as Debbie Macomber returns to Seattle with an uplifting inspirational yarn.--- Harriet Klausner

    A Good Yarn

    Another class is about to start at A Good Yarn, and with it, more lives that are in need of repair have the opportunity to come together and be reknit. There is Elise, a retired librarian who lost her heart and savings to Maverick Beaumont, a professional gambler, or more aptly, loser. Then comes Bethane, a woman whose husband ditched her for a younger model, leaving her to raise two teens who are in the throes of acting out. Finally, there is Courtney, a teen with a weight problem who does not want to be in that town, much less the class. Together with their teacher, Lydia Hoffman and her sister Margaret, these women will begin to weave new lives, ones that interlock with each others' in new and inspirational ways. *** Although the shifting perspective between first and third person, as well as the changing point of view between characters takes a while to get the hang of, in the end it is worthwhile to do so. This book is not billed as inspirational, per se, but you would not be wrong to look for inspiration herein. ***
