From the author:
"I've been blessed with good friends in my life," says Janet. "And I wanted to share some of those friendship feelings in the series of novels I am writing about a group of young cancer survivors who have met weekly for years. They call themselves The Sisterhood of the Dropped Stitches."
"I wanted to show how important friendship is when sickness is involved," Janet says. "I also wanted to show the rewards of long, steady friendships. Marilee, Carly, Becca, and Lisabett are friends we would all like to have in our lives."
The novels take place in Pasadena, California which is where Janet currently lives.
"I like the Old Town part of Pasadena," Janet says. "It has become very cosmopolitan over the last years with almost a New York look to it. That's why it was the perfect setting for The Pews (the diner where The Sisterhood meets). Great food just always seems to go with great friendship."
The story of the Sisterhood will be told in four novels, Marilee is first in "The Sisterhood of the Dropped Stitches" (February 2007), Carly comes second in "A Dropped Stitches Christmas" (December 2007), and Becca and Lizabett will have their turn, likely in 2008.« less
I really enjoyed this book. It is the sequel to the Sisterhood of the Dropped Stitches. These young ladies met in chemotherapy when they were teenagers. They formed a club where they knit and talk. This particular story is about Carly.
