This was a really, really good book. It takes 2 women from 2 entirely different lifestyles, and "knits" them together. As a knitter, I loved it. But I have also shared it with some of my non-knitter friends, who also loved it. I wish there were more books out there by Anne Bartlett. I enjoy her writing style.

What fun to read and discuss with your knitting group. We want a Martha to love and learn from.

An excellent story of friendship and the importance of individuality as well as the beauty of knitting.

Bartlett provides us with real characters, a hint of mystery, and a lot of texture. Her style and story are not too 'fluffy.' I read this late one night, and don't regret missing sleep! She understands someone who explores faith without preaching to her readers. I'll pass this book to friends.

I kept wanting to enjoy this book, particularly as I have enjoyed knitting for many years, but it was the attempt to use knitting to tie the two main characters together that ultimately failed. I can't conceive of calling the relationship between Sandra and Martha a friendship. Even at the end, they had just reached the point where a friendship might begin. The knitting/fabric metaphor, meant to tie them together, seemed especially forced regarding Sandra, who has the additional problem of being an unsympathetic character. I kept reading, though, because the writing is fairly pleasant, as is Martha. Then I felt betrayed when I reached the end, which I regard as a fairy-tale-like sellout. I read constantly, and it's been a long time since I felt that a book wasted my time, but this one did. I won't be following my usual habit of picking a friend to pass it along to.

Interesting characters that as you get to know, reminds us all to give everyone a chance in this world as you don't know how they may impact your life, or you theirs for a while to come. A feel good story, heartwarming, nice read on a rainy day....
