This book is a collection of short stories about three women that love to knit and how it impacts their lives.

The Twenty First Wish by Debbie Macomber

Anne Marie Roche and her adopted daughter Ellen from Debbie Macomber's previous book Twenty Wishes are in this short story. I love this story about Anne Marie coming to terms with her feelings about Ellen's biological father Tim.

Reading about all of the people on Blossom Street brings me back to all the wonderful previous stories by Debbie Macomber. Can't wait for the next story to be told.



Unraveled by Susan Mallery

Robyn Mulligan comes home to Georgetown, Texas to help her grandmother Eleanor run her yarn store named Only Ewe. Eleanor needs knee replacement surgery. It is at the store where Robyn meets T.J. He was in an auto accident a couple of years earlier. His wife and baby son were killed. He came to Only Ewe to take up knitting to help with his fine motor skills.

Watching their relationship grow by overcoming their fears and their past is great reading.



Return to Summer Island by Christine Skye

Caro McNeal is a senior advocate living in Chicago. Knitting kept her sane when life was tangled and work was very grim. Crossing a street on her way to work she is hit by a van. She has torn ligaments and several fractures in her right arm and hand. Her grandmother, Morgan McNeal comes to Chicago to take care of her. Four weeks after her accident Morgan takes her back to Summer Island.

Gage Grayson, a Marine home on leave from Afghanistan comes to pick up a painting Morgan has done for the wife of a friend. Caro is there and feels a connection to him. He has his dog, Bogart and his cat, Bacall with him. After a picnic lunch he leaves to bring Bogart and Bacall to a friend. On the way he finds out that his friend is sick and has to be hospitalized. He returns to Summer Island and finds the local animal shelter run by Peter Lindstrom. Peter is a local vet and a good friend of Caro's grandmother. He takes Gage's animals for him.

Caro finds out the animals are there and forms a bond with them. Gage and Caro start e-mailing messages to each other.Their friendship grows and they become very close.

This is a wonderful story about the strength and resiliency of people. Hope there are more stories about Summer Island soon.
