    It's been 10 months since Jack died, and Sandra, a tightly wound academic, copes with her grief by immersing herself in the history of textiles. When she and Martha, a gifted knitter, meet over an unconscious body on the footpath, the unlikely threads of their lives tangle into each other. Sandra invites Martha to join her in a professional collaboration, but what begins as a working relationship becomes something deeply personal.

    Story

    This is an enjoyable listen, with a meaningful, layered story I enjoyed listening to, while knitting :) The character development is okay, but I'd have preferred more insight into the women early in the story line. The two main characters, Sandra and Martha, begin with one seemingly strong and sympathetic and the other talented but seemingly flawed. By the final scene, the descriptions have switched between the characters, but still with too little real insight into Sandra as a person.

    My primary hesitation comes as a knitter. The knitting details do not always ring true, despite the acknowledgments section at the end where the author professes to be a knitter. I'd also love to know if the "feather" stitch is in fact "feather and fan" and more definitive information about the other stitches mentioned - none of which are referred to with an American name - and not even one that comes up when googled. Why the tease?
