The Shop on Blossom Street (Blossom Street Series #1) by Debbie Macomber

Four lives knit together… 

There's a little yarn store in Seattle called A Good Yarn. It's owned by Lydia Hoffman, and it represents her dream of a new beginning, a life free from cancer. A life that offers a chance at love… 

Lydia teaches knitting to beginners, and the first class is How to Make a Baby Blanket. Three women join. Jacqueline Donovan disapproves of the woman married to her only son, but knitting a baby blanket would be a gesture of reconciliation. 

For Carol Girard, the baby blanket brings a message of hope as she and her husband make a final attempt to conceive. 

And tough-looking Alix Townsend (that's Alix with an i) is learning to knit her blanket for a court-ordered community service project. 

These four very different women, brought together by the age-old craft of knitting, make unexpected discoveries—about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead to friendship and acceptance, to laughter and dreams. Discoveries only women can share…

This was my weekly free book on my Nook a couple of weeks ago. It looked interesting but I wasn't familiar with the author but since it was free I downloaded it. After I started reading it I couldn't put it down. There are four main characters in the book and every chapter switches to a different character's perspective. Sometimes the chapter will end leaving you hanging and I couldn't wait to get to the next chapter from that characters perspective to see how it finished out. Even though I am not a knitter it was easy to relate to these women because they are all going through events in their lives that could happen to anyone. I am a 23 year old female and this book was right up my alley!

I downloaded this book to my ebook collection on my nook because it was offered for free. I have never read any books by this author, so I thought I would give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. It was easy to relate to the different characters and the book never really dragged along in any place. I really liked how all the characters ended up with a special bond in the end, but each had their own unique story. This book really kept me interested and made me want to read more. Apparently this book is the first of a series by this author. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.

This book has such a warm, charming feeling throughout. What a wonderful writing style to get the readers wrapped up in the characters and keeping the reader turning the pages, dying to see how each main character unfolds her life. It is wonderful to see how each woman gets to the Good Yarn store and the effect it has on her. Every reader can relate to the variety of knitters introduced in this book and how their lives become more enriched because of their new found friendships.

This was my first Macomber book and I'm definately interested in reading more. I loved how different the characters were and how their lives all came together through adversity and a happy ending.

This was such a refreshing book. I am always amazed at how I can become so involved with Macomber's characters. The story focuses on the lives of 4 women who are COMPLETELY different but their lives become involved together. Wonderful!!!

I found this book to be a fast, enjoyable and easy read. The author has a great way of describing the characters and I highly recommend this book. It was a free ebook (not a book I would have purchased) - but I am certainly going to now purchase more books by this author. CL

I like happy endings. So, sometimes I give the more intense literature and non-fiction a rest and pick up a light read. This is a cute story that is very touching. It would be good for say a vacation or summer book. I have the e-book version but went to buy a paperback for my mother (who doesn't have a reader). I know she'll enjoy it.

A friend recommended the Blossom series and I am so glad she did. I started with this book, the first in the series. The characters were fun, just very "normal" everyday people. It was hard to put this book down. I couldn't wait to start the next book in the series, "A Good Yarn".

At first I was hesitant about reading this book. I enjoy reading murder mystery novels. But this book was something different. I decided to read it because I used to love to Knit and I haven't done it in a long time, and I was hoping to get back into it again. This book will help you with that, but it would also help you to believe in romance, hope and friendship. If you have lost any hope....after reading this book you get the hope back and much more.

This is my second book in the Blossom Street series and I found it difficult to put down. Three women join the proprietor of a new yarn shop in Seattle for weekly knitting lessons. Each of the four have issues that they may not be aware will affect the group. As they spend more time together, lives are changed by the interactions of the group members. Sweet romance is a given. I'm on to the next book in the series!

A good clean book - a story without loose ends. But, caution: It begins similar to another book and I was ready to archive it and then realized I had just purchased it a couple of weeks ago. I am so glad I continued reading it. The story starts out with a lady who has gone through two bouts of brain cancer and yet has survived. The first surgery was when she was 16 and to keep herself busy she started knitting. Now, as a grown woman she decided to try opening a knitting shop. Once opened, she advertised knitting classes. From then on the story (mostly) revolves around the owner and the three ladies who signed up for the beginners class. The three could not be more different and there was a lot of anger and snipping until something major happened which changed everything. I recommend this book and was so happy that the author 'wove' all the details together together.

I know exactly how Carol is feeling about babies cycles appointments everything she is feeling. It iis so heartbreaking. In the end you either end up with that precious child you both want so much.. None of these feelings apply to anyone who has had a baby and just wants another. You dont understand what its like. Or you can end up completly broken and alone with no way to fix it. That is what happened to me I lost yhe man I loved . No one told us what to expect. Iit was hard. I will always love you..But its to late all gone.

The way that Macomber tells this story in the first person really makes you feel like you’re hearing a story from a friend rather than reading a book.  She unequivocally invites you into her world.  She brings life’s highs and lows together in a way that warms your heart.   I learned a great deal about yarn and knitting throughout.  It was built right into the story, intrinsic to the lives of the characters.  I was astounded by the way this was so seamlessly worked into the tale.  It definitely added extra depth to the tale for me.  Macomber not only made it interesting, but she also made me want to give it a try.   This novel is full of lifelike characters that make their way into your heart.  They’re the type of people that once you meet them, you won’t ever forget them.  I enjoyed how Macomber showed the four different characters’ perspectives.  The intertwining stories alongside each other were amazing.  I will admit that there were a couple that I disliked at the beginning, but throughout the novel they grew on me.   This novel was a fantastic start to Macombers Blossom Street series.  She drew me into this world and I can’t wait to go back.
