By Sarah VINE VOICE on 14 May 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
I started this book having been sold on the premise that it would be like Sarah Addison Allen, unfortunately i found that although it is in the magical realism genre it is not as like Sarah Addison Allen as i would have hoped. I could feel there were elements that both authors have in common, but somehow this book was not as magical or a spine tingling as Addison Allen. I also felt that i couldn't connect with the characters as well as i felt i could have done. As a first attempt at this type of writing it is reasonable, it isn't badly written, just lacking that special something that magical realism really needs. I will look out for further books by this author because i think she could become a good writer with just a little more polish.

I bought this book after someone on Facebook recommended it. I enjoyed every word. A wonderful story of love, family reunion and community.

A lovely read whether you can knit or knot :-) . Similar to S.A.A where life and magic mingle, but L.V.A def has her own style. Plot sounds insane (magic knitting?!!) but its so lovely and heart warming. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

This book reminded me of similar authors such as Sarah Addison Allen and Alice Hoffman....loved this little town, the characters, everything. Such a delightful read, i really did lose myself in this story.
