A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber

A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber
narrator: Linda Emond
5cds 6hrs

From back of book:
In the year since it opened, A Good Yarn has thrived-and so has Lydia Hoffman, the owner. A lot of that is due to Brad Goetz. But when Brad’s ex-wife reappears, Lydia is suddenly afraid to trust her newfound happiness. Elise Beaumont joins one of Lydia’s popular knitting classes. Living with her daughter, Aurora, Elisa learns that her onetime husband plans to visit and that Aurora wants a relationship with her father, regardless of how Elise feels about him. Bethanne Hamlin is facing the fallout from a divorce and joins the knitting class as the first step in her effort to recover a sense of dignity and hope. Courtney Pulanski is depressed and overweight teenager. She’s staying with her grandmother, who’s trying to help by taking her to the knitting class.

My Review:
This is a chick lit book that deals with the lives of several women all center around the knitting store called A Good Yarn. Lydia, the owner of the store, has survived two bouts with cancer. She has made friends with the ladies of her knitting class. She starts a new class for sock knitting and it’s a rocky start at first.

Bethanne is recently divorce and has lost all self-confidence. I have to admit she was a bit pathetic and annoying. Elise had lost most of her money in a bad real estate scam and is living with her daughter when her ex-husband shows up. Courtney is living with her grandmother while her father is out of the country on assignment.
The novel does a great job of telling each individual story while linking them all together. It is about love and friendship. It is about women coming together to support one another.

The narrator voice was pleasant. Her voice draws the listener into the story. I am a crocheter learning to knit so I really enjoyed this story. tbr list's a great story and a quick read
