For those who don't understand the healing properties knitting offers, Lydia explains it thusly, "Knitting was my salvation. That's something I've said often, I know, but it's simply the truth. Even now, after nearly ten years of living cancer-free, knitting dominates my life. Because of my yarn store, I've become part of a community of knitters and friends."
She is now beginning a new knitting class and this time the work is on prayer shawls. Among the knitters are Colette Blake, a young widow employed at the new shop next door that offers flowers and floral arrangements. Colette had been romantically involved with her previous employer who is now frequently ordering flowers - all too much for her to process. Clicking needles right along side her is Susannah Nelson, the owner of the flower shop.
Making a return visit is Alix Townsend, the daughter of ne'er-do-well parents who is now engaged to Rev. Jordan Turner. The wedding, which she had imagined as a small, meaningful occasion is quickly becoming a major social event. Now, just a few months before her walk down the aisle Alix is beginning to wonder whether or not she is cut out to be a minister's wife.Read more ›
"Back on Blossom Street" is Debbie Macomber's fourth novel in the Blossom Street series and her students are a mixed bunch. There's Susannah Nelson, a former teacher, who owns and runs Susannah's Garden, a successful florists a few doors away from A Good Yarn, and has a teenage daughter who attends college and helps out sometimes.
Susannah's assistant, Collette Blake, is a widow trying to come to terms with her grief and who has run away from her former boss, Christian Dempsey, a noted businessman, after becoming pregnant by him and reporting him to the authorities when she discovers a program on his computer which makes her think he's people traffiker. Can he really be guilty of this?
Alix Townsend has appeared in previous Blossom Street novels as a girl from a broken home, who has a heart of gold and is now engaged to Jordan Turner, a local pastor. She has the difficult task of trying to get on with her prospective mother in law while preventing her from choreographing and producing what Alix regards as a wedding celebration from hell.
Then there's Lydia's immediate family. Her niece Julia is carjacked and the reaction of her mother (Lydia's sister) Margaret, who also serves A Good Yarn customers, is at first understandable but gradually becomes corrosive as she seeks revenge for the crime.
This is an enjoyable contemporary novel, and I'd recommend it, either as a stand alone or as part of the series, if you're interested in the way humans interreact with each other, want to know what happens to the characters and hope for a happy ending. Buy it and read it.
