Ok ish story- but hugely contrived. Thinly veiled catharsis for the author's own grief in getting over her child's death. predictable ending.
A bit rubbish.Read moreLess
"I loved this book, and read it in a matter…"
I loved this book, and read it in a matter of days. I thought it was well written if a bit contrived and I found the characters and story both likeable and interesting.
It revolves around a knitting circle who use knitting to come to terms with life's troubles. You are brought into the circle by the main character but learn about others' problems throughout the book (this is where it is a bit contrived).
It sounds really wet but I am not given to liking books just because I should, or because of the subject matter, and I was as surprised as the next person that I liked this book so much, so if you fancy a good yarn (no pun intended) this is a good book to choose.
It is probably not 'a light read' considering the subject matter (the tragic death of a child which is my biggest fear tbh), but didn't know which other category to put it in. Maybe a 'A Good Read' category is required.Read moreLess
