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...
Really good book about several mismatched women making friends and teaching each other about life.
