I have finished reading all the previous books under the Blossom Street series and have been eagerly waiting for this latest book which is out in the local bookstores so that i can find out what has been happening to some of my favourite characters in the series and also know new characters which will be introduced in this new book. I love Debbie Macomber's style of writing and it is always so nice and comforting to read her book. I can't wait to get the book from my local library once it is available.
Description of "Summer On Blossom Street":
Knitting and life. They’re both about beginnings—and endings. That’s why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle’s Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It’s for people who want to quit something—or someone!—and start a new phase of their lives.
First to join is Phoebe Rylander. She recently ended her engagement to a man who doesn’t know the meaning of faithful, and she’s trying to get over him. Then there’s Alix Turner. She and her husband, Jordan, want a baby, which means she has to quit smoking. And Bryan Hutchinson joins the class because he needs a way to deal with the stress of running his family’s business—not to mention the lawsuit brought against him by an unscrupulous lawyer.
Life can be as complicated as a knitting pattern. Just ask Anne Marie Roche. She and her adopted daughter, Ellen, finally have the happiness they wished for. And then a stranger comes to her bookstore asking questions.
Or ask Lydia herself. Not only is she coping with her increasingly frail mother, but she and Brad have unexpectedly become foster parents to an angry, defiant twelve-year-old.But as Lydia already knows, when life gets difficult and your stitches are snarled, your friends can always help!
