This was a pretty good read, I wasn't so sure I would like it quite as much as I did considering that I primarily read mystery novels. A friend of mine read the back cover and said it reminder her of Fried Green Tomatoes, perhaps I'll pick that one up next.

The character Georgia makes her tough situation by the choices that she made and turned them around for the better for and her daughter. No matter your path in life there is always a way to change it but it is always up to you do so with or without help.

The women in her knitting shop are of all experience level's and they all have minor stories within the main story. Kind of like their background of how they came into the knitting circle. Each on is different and unique in their own way.

Georgia also shows that you can be a strong person, and still be able to forgive those that hurt you deeply in the past if you are willing to put the hurt aside and try to make your relationships work. Her daughter Dakota is her life and she would do anything for her but also not make her spolied and teacher her right from wrong even when she's so tired from having to do it all.

Dakota's dad comes back into the picture after 12 years of abondonment and needs to make things right with his ex and his child. He realized he was missing out on a good thing and has to prove to Georgia that he was a changed man.

Overall this was a wonderful book, the ending was a bit tough to swallow and makes me wonder how the second and thrid books will be. I guess I'll just have to read on to see if it will keep my interest.
