Come back to Seattle’s Blossom Street with #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber!
These are the next four stories (after The Shop on Blossom Street, A Good Yarn and Susannah’s Garden) in one of the most popular series around…
Christmas Letters Katherine O’Connor (known as K.O.) adores her five—year—old twin nieces—and strongly objects to her sister Zelda’s plans to dispense with Christmas. Zelda is following the theories of child psychologist Wynn Jeffries, author of The Free Child (and also K.O.’s neighbor on Blossom Street). K.O. is particularly horrified by his edict to "bury Santa under the sleigh," and she’s out to prove that Wynn and his ideas are full of…snow. He’s not going to ruin her nieces’ Christmas! Too bad the guy’s so darned attractive…
Back on Blossom Street Susannah Nelson, owner of Susannah’s Garden, has just hired an assistant named Colette Blake, a young widow who’s obviously hiding a secret—or two! When Susannah and Colette both join Lydia Goetz’s new knitting class, they discover that Lydia and her sister, Margaret, have worries of their own. Margaret’s daughter, Julia, is the victim of a random carjacking, and the entire family is thrown into emotional chaos. Then there’s Alix Townsend, whose wedding is only months away. She’s not sure she can go through with it, though. But, like everyone in Lydia’s knitting class, Alix knows there’s a solution to every problem…and another woman can usually help you find it!
Twenty Wishes What Anne Marie Roche, owner of Blossom Street Books, wants is to find happiness again. At thirty—eight, she’s childless, a recent widow and alone. On Valentine’s Day, Anne Marie and several other widows get together to celebrate…a sense of hope. They each begin a list of twenty wishes—including things they’d always wanted to do but never done. When she volunteers at a local school, an eight—year—old girl named Ellen enters her life. As Ellen helps Anne Marie complete her list, they both learn that wishes can come true…but not necessarily in the way you expect!
The Twenty—First Wish Anne Marie and her adopted daughter, Ellen, have each written a list of twenty wishes—on which they included learning to knit. Like many of their wishes, it’s come true and now they knit practically every day. But Ellen has quietly added a twenty—first wish: that her mom will fall in love with Ellen’s birth father, Tim, who’s recently entered their lives…
