92 - The Shop on Blossom Street; Debbie Macomber
The Shop on Blossom Street (Blossom Street, No. 1), is a first in the Blossom series, and also the first book I've ever read (in this case listen to) by this author (oops --just realized I read a Christmas book of hers one years). I chose this book because I wanted sometime relaxing to listen to before bed. This one hit the spot.
Read by Linda Emond who does a great job with the four characters in this story. Four very different characters become friends while taking a knitting class at (you guessed it) The Shop on Blossom Street. For Lydia, the shop's owner, a two-time cancer survivor, the shop represents a new beginning.
The first project is : how to knit a baby blanket. The participants in the class are struggling with various personal issues: cancer, divorce, miscarriage etc, and from each other they learn how to accept life's setbacks and find happiness in their lives once again.
I was happy I tried this book. A light read, nothing too depressing or heavy, this book turned out to be a good listen well into the wee hours of the morning on some nights.
RATING - 4/5 - COMPLETED - 6/20/09
