Book Description

11 April 2013

For years, Libby Morgan dreamed only of making partner in her competitive, high-pressure law firm. She sacrificed everything for her career - her friends, her marriage, her chance at creating a family. When her boss calls Libby into his office, she assumes it will finally be good news, but nothing can prepare her for the shocking reality: she's been let go and must rebuild her entire life . . . starting now.

With no job prospects in sight, Libby reaches out to old friends and spends her afternoons at A Good Yarn, the local knitting store. There, she forms a close bond with Lydia, the sweet-natured shop owner, Lydia's spirited teenaged daughter, Casey, and Casey's best friend, Ava, a shy yet troubled girl who will shape Libby's future in surprising and profound ways.

As A Good Yarn becomes a second home - and the women a new kind of family - Libby relishes the different person she's become. She even finds time for romance with a charming and handsome doctor who seems to be her perfect match. But just as everything is coming together, Libby must make a choice that could forever change the life she holds so dear.

Warmly told and richly textured, Starting Now is filled with the promise of new beginnings and the unending delights of companionship and love.

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.

A heartfelt tale of friendship and new beginnings, from international betseller Debbie Macomber

Debbie Macomber returns to Blossom Street in this heartfelt tale of friendship and new beginnings.

Libby Morgan has sacrificed everything for her career as a lawyer - friends, marriage, her chance of a family. Until, after years of hard work, the unthinkable happens, and suddenly Libby must start to rebuild her life... starting now.

With no job in sight, she spends her afternoons at A Good Yarn, the local knitting store. There she forms a close bond with the sweet-natured shop owner, and with Ava, a shy and troubled teenager who needs her in ways she could not have expected. She even finds time for romance with a handsome doctor.

But just as her life is coming together, Libby risks losing everything she holds most dear.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comfort food for the mind !! 2 July 2013
By David H J Ashdown TOP 500 REVIEWER
A good summer easy read, boy meets girl they split up they get back together etc., nothing spectacular but a feel good story if you don't want anything challenging to read and to while away the hours, it won't be a classic but it's like thousands of others available and quite well written. If you're expecting a masterpiece or a gripping plot you've got the wrong book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A change of a lifetime 13 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Loved the book. A great read for my Easter holidays. It made me rethink all the effort people put into their careers and what they actually get from it in the end. Also calls one's attention to problems that people go through in terms of building relationships and the fact that everyone has "baggage" and not just "you".
