I think I picked up this book for the first time back in November. ….. WOW this one took me a while to read! I’m not going to lie, for some reason it took me a while to really get into this book. I really don’t like starting to read something and then just dropping it, so I kept giving it a chance until finally last week, I got a point where I really did want to keep reading. Once I really started to feel an attachment to the characters, I found myself not wanting to put it down no matter how tired I was! This past Saturday, I picked the book up with about 1/3 left to go and about 2 hours later, I had the thing finished!
Looking back, I really did enjoy this book. I think the only reason it took me so long to get into it was that I decided to start reading it right before the busy holiday season. I was so busy through November and December that I found it really hard to just sit down and read. I know this is so, because when I really had the chance to immerse myself in this book, it was wonderful! Kate Jacobs tells a wonderful story about how women from different walks of life are able to be brought together through a common interest – knitting. These women manage to bind together through good times and bad and overall the story is really uplifting. It actually made me a little jealous wishing I had a group of women like that around here who have my back!
This book was definitely not what I expected when I first started reading, and I’m really glad I didn’t give up on it. All in all, a great book.
