This book is not something you read if you're looking for a deep, intellectual book. The characters are a bit predictable and one-dimensional, but this book was a fun read.

Not nearly enough knitting. :)
I liked it over all and the characters were all very different from one another and interesting but there seemed to be a lot of small plot holes -not big enough to really affect the stories but big enough to annoy the reader. I read it aloud to my mom and sister on a long car trip and they felt the same. The way the book was written was strange in places, as if it wasn't intended originally to be just one book. The stories were good and I remained interested in the women's lives though. Overall, I'm quite glad I requested it.

This is a wonderful story of four women's very different lives and how a simple knitting class brings them together. There were definitely some tearful moments in this book, as well as some laugh-out-loud moments. Each of the characters brings something completely unique to the table and you can't help but silently root for all of them as the story plays out, and their lives become more intertwined.

One of those heart-warming books that draws you into the lives of the characters and makes you want to cheer them on. Have the hankies ready!! I can't wait to read the sequel...

I bought this book in the hospital gift shop when my husband was in for extensive surgery. Probably due to my own situation, I fell in to this story line. (I don't knit but enjoy crochet - close enough to enjoy the knitting shop theme.) I've since read the series, and until A TURN IN THE ROAD I had enjoyed them (just couldn't get in to that one). THE SHOP ON BLOSSOM STREET started me on the Debbie Macomber Cedar Cove Series, which I really enjoyed!

Book one of the Blossom Street series. When cancer survivor Lydia Hoffman opens a yarn store a group of unlikely women become friends through their love of knitting. Jacqueline is a society woman who is hiding her disappointment in her marriage and new daughter-in-law. Alix is a woman with a troubled past struggling to accept friendship and love from others. Carol and her husband want a child more than anything, but have been dealing with infertility for years. Through knitting and female bonding they all find the happiness that has alluded them.
As with all of Macomber's books, I finished the book with a happy positive feeling. It also made me want to take knitting lessons!
