Publisher's Summary

Knitting and life. They're both about beginnings - and endings. That's why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle's Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It's for people who want to quit something - or someone! - and start a new phase of their lives.

First to join is Phoebe Rylander. She recently ended her engagement to a man who doesn't know the meaning of faithful, and she's trying to get over him. Then there's Alix Turner. She and her husband, Jordan, want a baby, which means she has to quit smoking. And Bryan Hutchinson joins the class because he needs a way to deal with the stress of running his family's business - not to mention the lawsuit brought against him by an unscrupulous lawyer.

Life can be as complicated as a knitting pattern. Just ask Anne Marie Roche. She and her adopted daughter, Ellen, finally have the happiness they wished for. And then a stranger comes to her bookstore asking questions.

Or ask Lydia herself. Not only is she coping with her increasingly frail mother, but she and Brad have unexpectedly become foster parents to an angry, defiant 12-year-old.

But as Lydia already knows, when life gets difficult and your stitches are snarled, your friends can always help!

Painful to Listen to

While the story was cute, the narration detracted from it so much as to make listening to this book almost unbearable. Each and every character sounded exactly the same which made following dialogue problematic. Her enunciation was pretty lousy, as well. This was just painful to listen to.

  • Overall

Cute story - terrible narration

The story is nice, but the narrator is a big distraction. She does not read with appropriate inflection and she uses the same voice throughout - for every character. I recommend a different version of this book.

Excellent

Her books are so good. They leave you feeling so good after listening to them. This was the first one I had listened to that was narrated by Delilah. I must say, she was excellent. You could hear the characters smile in her voice. It was very well read!

Another great story

I always enjoy Debbie Macomber. Maybe some of the outcomes are predictable, but she has a nice way of bringing a story together. The best thing about this book is Delilah, the narrator. She speaks with a smile in her voice, and is perfect for Macomber books. Looking forward to the next installment of life on Blossom Street!
