    Twenty-three inspiring stories for the knitter's soul will warm your heart and make you laugh. These charming and poignant tales of the power of knitting are recounted with humor and insight.

    Enjoyed the book, particularly the tales, all told from personal perspectives, well researched and shared. Narrator's pace, cadence and inflection was irritating, however, detracting from the experience. Way too lively in spots, stressing words, comments, that did not reflect the text.

    American pathologist Nora Gavin fled to Ireland three years ago, hoping that distance from home would bring her peace. Though she threw herself into the study of bog bodies and the mysteries of their circumstances, she was ultimately led back to the one mystery she was unable to solve: the murder of her sister, Trona. Nora cant move forward until she goes backback to her home, to the scene of the crime, to the source of her nightmares and her deepest regrets.

    Lia says: "A good listen"
    "Another good one from Erin Hart"
    Overall

    Having enjoyed the previous Nora Gavin stories, I looked forward to reading one with a foot in St. Paul. I appreciate her "sense of place" details from both MN and the Donegal coast. The links with traditional music and folklore make this a satisfying read. Details of the mystery, from both this current book and the previous two, are tied together through characters in the subplots and unexpected connections - very well done. I look forward to more from Ms. Hart. I enjoyed the narration a great deal. While male voices, particularly American, were harder to believe, I found the differences in dialect, between northern Donegal and Dublin or Clare very true and a wonderful detailed addition.
