    This Yada Yada crowd meets the Elm Creek quilters in a Mossy Creek like Tennessee small town

    In Sweetgum, Tennessee, the Sweetgum Knit Lit Society consists of women who have been hurt in their relationships, but share their love of knitting and formed a book club. Sexagenarian librarian Eugenie Pierce has never even tasted love. Sisters Ruthie Allen and Esther Jackson will probably take sibling rivalry to the grave. Twentyish Camille St. Clair may not have the years of kicking the can experiences like the others, but her life is currently on hold as she cares for her dying mother. Merry McGavin seems happy with her loving family, but loving family means hiding the truth behind a façade as she is overwhelmed. Finally there is newest member thirteen years old Hannah Simmons, who has no future except to repeat the ugly past culminated with a temper fit in the library tearing out pages from books. As each faces a personal crisis caused in part by secrets they hide, their knit lit pals encourage and support one another.--------------------- This Yada Yada crowd meets the Elm Creek quilters in a Mossy Creek like Tennessee small town is a fine ensemble tale starring fully developed women in personal crisis who finds their knit lit members being there for them. The story line is well written, but though smooth, the author never explores deeply any of the ensemble cast while touching on all of them. Fans will enjoy the sisterhood as each helps one another.----------------- Harriet Klausner

    Highly recommended. An excellent buy.

    I liked this book because I like stories about friendships with so many different personalities.

    Frumpy Librarian

    I've come to enjoy reading Pattillo's books, but I am annoyed by one of the characters in this book. Pattillo spends a lot of time dispelling myths about women clergy in her Betsy books, yet makes the librarian of her Sweetgum books the quintessential frumpy spinster librarian who likes quiet and order (despite later falling in love). Many young talented librarians today work hard to dispel the myth of the stern, shushing librarian.

    Sweetgum Knit Lit Series

    I enjoyed both books about the Sweetgum Knit Lit Society. The characters are funny and remind me of the community where I grew up; every one knew every thing about everyone else. A fun read.
