Mary Baxter has lost her young daughter to meningitis and her grief is so overwhelming that it's consuming her. Mary decides to join a knitting group where she meets a cast of characters you will fall in love with. As the women of the group begin to teach Mary the stitches and finer points of knitting, they each slowly begin to reveal the secrets they themselves harbour. Only through telling their stories, is Mary able to reveal her own and ends up finding that there is a life after death.
This was beautifully written with good character development and plot line. We even encounter a surprise along the way that will leave you with your mouth sitting open!
