More About the Author

Through both words and deeds, Debbie Macomber inspires women from all walks of life to realise their dreams.

She overcame the obstacles in her own life to become one of the world's most popular writers. She encourages women to achieve the goals that burn in their hearts as fiercely as the desire to become a bestselling novelist did in her own.

When Debbie first decided to write a novel, people called her a hopeless dreamer. She had only a high school degree and was dyslexic. She was also the very young mother of four active children. No one believed she had what it took to write a book--except Debbie. She eventually saved enough money to rent an old typewriter, and every night when the children were asleep, she would sit down to write.

She wrote--for years. But each time she completed a story and mailed it off to a publisher, the manuscript was returned, stamped "rejected." As tough as it was to keep her spirits alive, Debbie never gave up. Five long years and thousands of pages later, she received a letter in the afternoon mail. The letter was from Silhouette Books--and they wanted to buy her story. Her first novel, Heartsong, was published as a Silhouette in 1984, and it became the first romance novel ever to be reviewed in Publishers Weekly.

Today, Debbie is the internationally acclaimed author of more than 100 novels and has sold over 60 millions copies. Popular around the globe, she receives approximately three thousand letters from readers every month. And she responds personally to each one.

In lectures around the country, Debbie encourages women to "exercise the success muscle." She also offers advice on how to achieve success in seeking or changing a career, building family relationships, forming healthy relationships and more.

Like her heartwarming novels, Debbie's inspirational speeches are always filled with laughter and love. She cares deeply about the women she touches with her writing, and she continues to mentor people around the country. She also volunteers her considerable talents to help raise much-needed funds for battered-women's shelters, literacy and medical research.

She lives with her husband in Port Orchard, Washington. Their children are grown and she is a proud grandmother.

Format: Paperback
This is the second book in Debbie Macomber's Blossom Street series. I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the others in the series. They are light, heart-warming books that I think are worth reading, and definitely good if you want a quick, easy read.

Again, the main character is Lydia Hoffman, the owner of the knitting shop, A Good Yarn. The story revolves around her, the shop, and the knitting class she starts. This time, it is socks. This class draws in three new customers - Elise, who is worried because her ex-husband who she still loves is back in town; Bethanne, a divorcee who is struggling with adjusting to single life, and desperately needs a job; and Courtney, a teenager new to Seattle, who has put on a lot of weight since the death of her mother and is about to start senior year, not knowing anyone. We watch as they grow in confidence, make friends, and resolve issues in their lives.

This is a good book. It is light, full of knitting, love, friendship and happiness. It is fairly predictable, but that does not spoil the book. I was engaged with this book, and didn't want to put it down. I really like how Macomber writes, she is easy to connect with and fun to read.

I enjoyed all the characters - I loved the knitters and hated those who were horrible, including Grant, Bethanne's mean ex-husband. I think Courtney was my favourite. She shows determination to get her life straightened out, and she is a good friend to all of them. I also liked how the characters from the first book, especially Jacqueline and Alix, were written into to this book, to keep the continuum going.

This is just an enjoyable book.

The pack contained the first few books in two series from Debbie Macomber. It is an ideal introduction for a new reader. The stories are light and enjoyable making them perfect for a relaxing read.
The nature of the series helps you build up an emotional interest in the characters and you find yourself looking for the next books in the series to carry on the experience.

I came upon Debbie Macomber as an author just by chance, and can't recommend her 'community spirited' books enough, no more so than the Blossom Street series. A Good Yarn, which as previous reviews show is the second in this series, and for anyone who has not yet read any of Debbie's work, I would highly recommend it. Go on, give it a try!

By Jo D'Arcy TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Dec. 2014
Format: Paperback
This is the second book in the series which is known as The Blossom Street Series. We are back with Lydia who owns the yarn store A Good Yarn on Blossom Street in Seattle. Of course there is much to catch up on with Lydia’s life and her sister and now colleague Margaret.

But it is not just their lives that Debbie Macomber tells us about in these books, it is those people who for many reasons appear in A Good Yarn.

They all have differing reasons and they come from all walks of life, class and age.

This time we meet Elsie, divorced from the only man she loves and living with her daughter due to some financial problems. It is not where Elsie wants to be and when her ex husband makes an appearance in her life it seems that everyone thinks he has changed except for her.

Bethanne had everything, home, husband and children. It seems her husband wanted someone else and now she has to become the breadwinner and parent and she finds it is not as easy as she thought. A blossoming idea leads to something else and Bethanne maybe able to turn everything around.

Courtney is a teenager in angst. She has had to move from the place she knew, whilst her father works abroad, separated from her older siblings and dealing with the death of her mother, she comes to stay with her grandmother. It means making new friends and starting a new school. Courtney feels she is going to stand out for all the wrong reasons.

These three women, come into A Good Yarn as a way of meeting new people, escaping the past and trying to deal with the present. Knitting for them gives them a diversion, a purpose and most of all friendship that they never knew they needed or wanted.

Of course everything is interwoven like the most simplest knitting pattern to form a great story and these books are cosy familiar reads just the same as putting on your favourite cosy knitted jumper!

Format: Paperback
Am I glad I got into these books. They stand alone as a good read but build into a great little community of friends and family stories. We meet old friends but each novel brings new characters and you find yourself wanting to learn more about them all. A guaranteed feel good factor at the end of each book. A very easy read, and although I am not a knitter (each book has its own knitting patterns), I can quite appreciate how a hobby brings people together.

As an avid reader of many different genres this was a new author for me and A Good Yarn and The Shop on Blossom Street were a very pleasant easy read, these were the books that were recommended to me by a friend and I would recommend them to anyone with a love of knitting. If you like knitting you can associate with the characters and their feelings towards your hobby I am sure you will enjoy these two books.

With regard to the other three I was glad to finish them (they only take a few hours) as the supposedly intelligent people, for instance a librarian and a Judge, seemed intent on confusing and complicating very simple emotional issues. These books seemed to be labouring to make a drama where one should not exist. You would need to read them to know what I mean, but would not recommend these three.
