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?
Anne is not at all for what passes as "Christian" in the media today. She is, thank God, the real thing and has such a gift for communicating her faith and practice to the world. There is no hype or inflated ego or need for exclusion here. If you believe in the Jesus of the gospels you will find affirmation and truth in her writing.
