However, unexpected changes soon throw these women's lives into disarray, and the shop's comfortable world gets shaken up like a snow globe. When the unthinkable happens, they realize what they've created - not just a knitting club, but a sisterhood.

"Kate Jacobs' breezy first novel reads like Steel Magnolias set in Manhattan." (USA Today)
"[P]oignant twists propel the plot and help the pacing find a pleasant rhythm." (Publishers Weekly)
The author has a decent grasp of language and seems to be fairly inventive. The reader is clear and precise, although doesn't do accents very well. The story lines were pretty much drivel, though, and the author didn't make me care about any of the characters as they plodded along.
The narration wasn't real great. The characters weren't likable, except for the daughter, Dakota, possibly. I got the feeling the author has something against the idea of children born within a marriage and marriage in general. This book left me frowning in disappointment.
Sure, I'd love to hear your story....
I tried to like this, but just couldn't care enough about any of the characters to - - well, care. Just not well paced or interesting.
