I enjoyed this book in spite of the somewhat predictable "Queen for a Day" losses revealed by all the women in this knitting group. Memorable characters, in a well-told tale of an interesting variety of women's lives, troubles and ways of coping. — Heather Bellanca
After the loss of her only child, Mary Baxter finds herself unable to read or write, the activities that used to be her primary source of comfort. She reluctantly joins a knitting circle as a way to fill her lonely days--not knowing it will change her life. As they teach Mary new knitting techniques, the women in the circle also reveal their own secrets of loss, love, and hope. With time, Mary is finally able to tell her own story of grief, and in so doing finds the spark of life again.
