Like many knit bloggers out there I was approached by Anne from The Book Report Network to write a review of Debbie Macomber's newest knitting book Back to Blossom Street.
This is the fourth book that has been set on Blossom Street and the third featuring the yarn shop, A Good Yarn. Back on Blossom Street is the story of 4 women who have been brought together by an interest in knitting who go on to become friends. They learn about trust and friendship as they share their problems and experiences.
It is easy reading and the story is written clearly enough that following each character's story is not a chore. I read it in a couple of evenings and think it would be fitting for a shady spot on the lake while sipping lemonade or while hanging out under the umbrella at the beach.* Occasionally my editing hat (and desire for concise writing) would whisper in my ear "was that last sentence really necessary? or didn't she already tell us that?" but not enough to detract from my enjoyment of this quick and enjoyable read.
*If you tan that would be a good time too but the other day I was checking out the two albino twins in one of my classes and realized the only difference in skin color between them and me was the occasional freckle and mole -- I better keep out of the sun
