My Aunt Fay sent me this book because she and I share a love of books and knitting. I still find myself, years after reading it, thinking back to the little seaside village and wishing I could visit.
I couldn't remember the name of the book, but when mentioned the story to my cousin, Aunt Fay's daughter, she knew instantly which book I was talking about and said she, too, wished she could visit.
I think it was written very well and I just might have to read it again.
I thought this book started well, but quickly turned boring. Made it to halfway through the book and called it a day. Another one of those books that uses knitting to pull you in, but lacks any credible story. Kudos to those who managed to read to the end.
If you like knitting you must read this book. Spent half my time torn between wanting to read and wanting to cast on. I only wish I could master knitting while reading.
Her style is kind of jarring a la Devil Wears Prada and you can't always follow who says what but very endearing characters nonetheless
I was not to far into this story before I realized I had read it before. If I hadn't so many other books on hand to read, I would of continued, as I was enjoying the story for the second time.
99.9 % yakking dialogue, constantly interrupted by quarrelling kids.
A quick easy read.You don't have to have a knowledge of knitting to be able to enjoy this story.This is the first book of the series. I am looking forward to reading the second book.(Needles and Pearls)
I liked this book, but wouldn't necessarily call it memorable or recommend it to a friend as a great read. While the story was entertaining, I found it pretty predictable. Also, I found it lacking in detail and depth. I felt thrown into the knitting club and the members, rather than getting to know them as individual characters. I felt that this book was lacking character development in general, even with the main characters - like it was just skimming the surface.
This would be a good vacation read - one that you don't have to pay much attention to in order to enjoy it.
This book is all about new beginnings as widowed mother starts over in a small hamlet. It is funny and really sweet - especially the scenes between the main character and her two little boys. It is set in England so is peppered with delightful local language.
