    Knit the Season is a loving, moving, laugh-out-loud celebration of special times with friends and family. The story begins a year after the end of Knit Two, with Dakota Walker's trip to spend the Christmas holidays with her Gran in Scotland, accompanied by her father, her grandparents, and her mother's best friend, Catherine. Together, they share a trove of happy memories about past Christmases.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Knit the Season the most enjoyable?

    I listened to the book during the Christmas season, so the work/family/self issues--dilemmas in the book-- were part of my on-going balancing act and thus relevant and encouraged internal dialogue as a I agreed or disagreed with a character's position.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anita is my favorite character. She is wise and elegant and loving--yet has her times of self-doubt and can be manipulated by those she loves and trusts. She is very real and a role model.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The double wedding was great, but I also liked the bridal shower.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Gran gave Dakota, James and Mrs. Walker photos of Georgia at Christmas, I cried. This was not a good thing as I was driving to work and didn't want to have to explain about crying over fictional characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a story rich in relationships. The women seem like women we all know, with good points and flaws, skills and deficiencies. They even annoy each other at times--just like real friends. One of the things I particularly liked about the book was that some of the scenes seemed set up for a particular action and the author didn't go for the predictable. The turn was in the story flowed from the previous action, but it wasn't formulaic, which made it much more enjoyable. I've set this book aside to listen to again next Christmas.
