Re: The Knitting Diaries
I am a big fan of each of these authors. Now they have banded together to produce a charming book stitched together with themes of knitting, family, second chances, small towns, and new love. I don't knit, but reading this book has made me consider giving it a try. For many characters, knitting is a passion and a comfort, a way to find truth, healing, and love. In each story, the romance was well-developed and heart-tugging. This book is definitely a keeper.

In the 21st Wish by Macomber we get a sequel to 20 Wishes. I really enjoyed the chance to catch up on how the adoption was working for Anne Marie and Ellen.
In Susan Mallery's Unraveled a young woman returns home after an attempt to make her fame and fortune in New York, but what she learns could be a lesson to all...perhaps happiness is really in our own back yards.
Christina Skye's entry takes us into the world of having to leave a beloved pet behind and the war in Afghanistan two different yet timely issues here.
Of the three authors who contributed I've not read much of Ms. Skye. Yet her story was as touching as the others and made me as a reader realize that I have a vast body of work mostly unread into which to delve this summer.
