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!

Great story, AWFUL NARRATOR!!

I love the story, but Delilah has NO BUSINESS being a narrator. She is loud, she reads too fast, she is just plane obnoxious to listen to.

Great Book - Bad Reader

While I enjoyed the book itself, I found the poor quality of the reader very distracting. Specifically the reader cannot seem to pronounce "d" as in husban(d) or "ed" as in ask(ed) or as(ked) - so instead of saying "she asked" the reader would say "she ass" or "she ask". She also continually pronounced "she would" or "he would" as sh'd or hid, or he had as "h'd". This poor pronounciation drove me nuts.

The book was what I expected

I've listened to all the Blossom St. books and enjoyed them. From now on though I will pay closer attention to who's reading. Delilah just didn't do it for me.

couldn't even listen to it...bad narration!

I have enjoyed Debbie Macomber's books and I really like Delilah as a radio host, but she needs to stick to that and not try to read books to adults!

Narration was terrible

This is such a wonderful story about so many lives that touch each other..sadly the narrator was so horrible it was all ruined. The narrator rushed reading the book in places it was hard to follow.

Narrator issues

I love the book but the narration was stiff and unnatural. The narrator's voice inflection was erratic and it was difficult following which character was speaking at times.

The naration was a problem

Would you try another book from Debbie Macomber and/or Delilah?

I plan to eventually read all of Debbie Macomber books, but will avoid any more books that are read by this particular narrator. She really does a poor job of following the story with her voice.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Delilah?

Eby Sirois did an excellent job with a Debbie Macomber book.

Some good, tired of narrator

Through the beginning of the book, I wasn't pulled into the storylines. About halfway through I started to connect. I wish more would have been written on Alix. A shame to include a character and not write much about her. I really enjoyed the ending and at that point was really involved in the storylines. I couldn't stand Delilah as the narrator. I love her on the radio, but horrible as a narrator. Everybody had the same voice and expressions. It ruined a lot of the book for me. Overall, I liked the book though.
