3.0 out of 5 stars ok but not great
Not the normal overly sentimental read, and there were some touching bits, i too went down the ivf route so could understand some of the characters point of view. It was quite predictable and kept jumping all over the place, also had a very sudden ending which was disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loss, longing and adoption with a bit of knitting, 26 July 2013

This review is from: The Red Thread: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
While sympathising with the characters in this story who, for various reasons, wanted to adopt a child from China, I felt that the moral, cultural and practical issues were not really questioned or addressed. The 'happy' ending came too quickly and was too neat. It seemed more wishful thinking than reality. I chose to read this story as I had enjoyed Ann Hood's 'The Knitting Circle' but I was disappointed with this yarn.

An ok read. An interesting topic but it was a tad predictable and all over the place. 'The Knitting Circle' was a much more interesting book.

I read this book as The Knitting Circle, also by Ann Hood, is one of my favourite books. I enjoyed this but not as much.

Not as good as her previous book. This one didn't keep my attention the same. I would try another of her books though

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 14 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Red Thread: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
I have read the knitting circle and was drawn into the stories of the various women's lives. This story is about couples wanting to adopt baby girls from China. It was eminently readable but sad at the same time. How can leaders dictate that only one girl can be born into a family and the rest must be cast out? I would not ever be without my two daughters!
