Sweetgum's Knit Lit Society discusses literature and knitting but carefully avoids real problems. Merry's an overstressed mom with a crumbling marriage. Esther's picture-perfect life is blighted by her husband's desire for free-spirited Ruth. Camille's round-the-clock care for her ailing mom stifles her dreams. And Eugenie - the town's spinster librarian - mourns what might have been. But when a deeply troubled teen joins the group, her unique perspective and the enduring power of the classics they discuss trigger an unexpected outpouring of concern.
In a poignant tale that prompts both tears and laughter, Linda Stephens' magnificent narration highlights the simple eloquence of Pattillo's central theme: Sharing the burdens of others puts our own in perspective - and makes them all easier to bear.
