Come back to Blossom Street with the novel that begins the beloved series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber, where you’ll find everything you’re looking for, from yarn and flowers, to friendship… and maybe even a new romance. Four lives knit together… There’s a little yarn store in Seattle called A Good Yarn. It’s owned by Lydia Hoffman, and it represents her dream of a new beginning, a life free from cancer. A life that offers a chance at love… Lydia teaches knitting to beginners, and the first class is How to Make a Baby Blanket. Three women join. Jacqueline Donovan disapproves of the woman married to her only son, but knitting a baby blanket would be a gesture of reconciliation. For Carol Girard, the baby blanket brings a message of hope as she and her husband make a final attempt to conceive. And tough-looking Alix Townsend (that’s Alix with an i) is learning to knit her blanket for a court-ordered community service project. These four very different women, brought together by the age-old craft of knitting, make unexpected discoveries—about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead to friendship and acceptance, to laughter and dreams. Discoveries only women can share… Originally published in 2004

Sometimes life is bad and this book has been helping me through it - maybe that is the best thing a book can do. I don't know if it matters about the characters, plots, dialogue and writing when emotional solace is found. Not that this was a badly written book - the contrary. So I will be stocking up and reading the rest of the series.

If you feel the need to read the Blossom Street books, definitely start with this book. It sets up the neighborhood nicely and gives readers a sense of the community. The four women of this book are so diverse in their personalities, but also alike. I love how Macomber developed them. You will definitely be able to identify with one of the ladies no matter your age.

I loved this book and all her others about Blossom Street and its residents. This one is definitely my favorite that she has written. When I see her name I always want to take out the book.

This book was better than I thought that it would be. I'll check out some other books by Macomber in the future. Also, I borrowed the knitting book that goes along with this story. It has 11 baby afghan patterns. A lot of cute ones in there, but I think most patterns are for intermediate knitters.
