Set in Montana, story is of returning home to manage a yarn shop after personal loss of family. A former boyfriend and his brother plus a horse are key to the unraveling tale and inspiration. I would recommend it for young folks as well as adults. Some knitting tips as Melinda teaches classes and makes a lap robe for wounded veterans.
