By Gail Cooke TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 3 May 2007
Format: Hardcover
Those eagerly awaiting a return to Seattle's Blossom Street will be pleased with Macomber's sequel to The Shop On Blossom Street. Many remember that cancer survivor Lydia Goetz opened a shop, The Good Yarn, which soon housed a knitting class of four women who forged friendships and helped each other through life's rough spots. The same kind of caring and helpfulness are found in Back On Blossom Street. Those who enjoy a feel-good listen will find it here.

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.

This book - Back on Blossom Street - is the same as Wednesdays At Four; don't get caught like I did and buy them both! Very annoying and expensive mistake.

This book is based in a knitting shop on blossom street. It is the fourth in the series I think but the first I have read. Each chapter focusses on the life of one of 3 main characters; Lydia- the owner of the knitting shop, Alix who works at the bakery across the road and is due to get married in 4 weeks but is having her wedding taken over by other people, and Colette who has recently moved into the flat above the shop. She is a widower with several secrets in her past which we learn more about as the book progresses. This is an easy read which requires very little effort. Very enjoyable though, I will be looking out for more in the series

Lydia Hoffman Goetz is a former cancer victim, who has recovered, opened a now thriving Yarn shop, A Good Yarn, on Blossom Street in Seattle and holds regular knitting classes.

"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.

This is another of Debbie Macomber's gentle stories set around a knitting shop and happenings on the street. You could read 'A Shop on Blossom Street' first, but this book can be read as a one off. Each character is brought to life & there is a feeling of knowing them well. In this book everyone is moving on with their lives & relationships develop No bloodshed, no heart-stoppers but as you grow to like these people, you still want to find out what happens next.

The "Blossom Street" novels are a good read, you feel you know the characters,the books flow well from one another. With new dilemmas and great friendships forming, some members of previous novels inter-woven with new ones, you feel you know how their lives are continuing even when they are not the main characters in each novel. Well written and a joy to read
