Synopsis: Come back to Blossom Street, where you’ll find everything you’re looking for, from yarn and flowers, to friendship… and maybe even a new romance. Enjoy again the beloved series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.

Lydia Hoffman owns a knitting shop on Seattle’s Blossom Street. In the year since it opened, A Good Yarn has thrived—and so has Lydia. A lot of that is due to Brad Goetz. But when Brad’s ex-wife reappears, Lydia is suddenly afraid to trust her newfound happiness.

Three women join Lydia’s newest class. Elise Beaumont, retired and bitterly divorced, learns that her onetime husband is reentering her life. Bethanne Hamlin is facing the fallout from a much more recent divorce. And Courtney Pulanski is a depressed teenager, whose grandmother’s idea of helping her is to drag her to seniors’ swim sessions—and to the knitting class at A Good Yarn.

The shop is a place of welcome and warmth, of friends old and new. Watch three women discover how knitting can change their lives.

Originally published in 2005

“An unbreakable bond is formed among the knitters in this poignant story of real women with real problems becoming real friends.” —Booklist
