NO. 1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'Soon we were laughing and crying at the same time. That's how it is sometimes. The laughter can be as healing as tears.' Every Wednesday on Blossom Street a group of women meet for a knitting class; each has her own share of worries and troubles. Lydia is happy with the life she has built but she's anxious about her ageing mother and her sister, Margaret, whose daughter has been attacked. Alix's wedding plans have been hijacked by her friends who, to her horror, want the social event of the year. With her troubled background can she be the perfect bride? Colette's husband has only been dead a year but she's pregnant with another man's child. To make matters worse, her lover is her boss! As friendships deepen these women start to confide in each other, but will listening and sharing be enough for them to move forward, leaving their pasts behind? Make time for friends. Make time for Debbie Macomber.
