The Shop On Blossom Street
As a devoted crafter, I love to read novels about other crafters. I enjoy stories in which the creative process is an integral part of the plot. The Shop On Blossom Street, by Debbie Macomber, is one such novel.
The Shop On Blossom Street is a novel about the lives and romances of four knitters. Lydia Hoffman, the owner of a yarn shop and cancer survivor, learns to let go of her illness and learn to love again. Alix Townsend, a troubled young woman, discovers that she is a good enough person to deserve a good man. Carol Girard, and her husband, suffer though the pains of infertility. And Jacqueline Donovan, a women emotionally separated from her husband, reconnects with both him and her family.
The yarn shop offers a common meeting ground for these four, very different women. Through knitting, they begin to reflect on and share their lives with one another. By the time they have finished working their way through a simple baby blanket, the crafters have all made important strides in both their relationships and their goals.
As usual, Debbie Macomber tells a wonderful story, full of life, personal growth and love.
