On a tiny island off the west coast of Ireland, the fishermen’s hand-made sweaters tell a story. Each is unique — feelings stitched into rows, memories into patterns. It is here that Rebecca Moray comes to research a book on Irish knitting. With her daughter, Rowan, accompanying her, she hopes to lose herself in the history of the island and forget her own painful past. Soon, the townsfolk’s warm embrace wraps Rebecca and Rowan in a world of friendship, laughter, and love. And it is here that young Rowan befriends Sean Morahan, a cantankerous old fisherman, despite his attempts to scare her off. As Rebecca watches her daughter interact with Morahan, she recognizes in his eyes a look that speaks of a dark knowledge not unlike her own. And when current storms threaten to resurrect old ones, Morahan and Rebecca find themselves on a collision course — with Rowan caught between them — each buffeted by waves of regret and recrimination. Only by walking headfirst into the winds will they find the faith to forgive without forgetting…and reach the shore. Download and start listening now!

Her college friend, Sharon is from an island off the coast of Ireland and helps to prepare things for her friend's visit. The people of the island already know much about Becky because they have heard many many "Becky" stories from Sharon.

    " This is one of my favorite books of all time. I believed the characters. They were well developed. The story intrigued me from the first. I was surprised many, many times. I sobbed with the ending; it was very cathartic....LOVED This book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Kathy | 2/13/2014

    " Okay, I am not, not, not going to try any more novels about people who enjoy knitting! This was better than the last one I tried, but not good enough for me to finish--stopped about 2/3 of the way through. The Sean character just bugged me too much and the developing love story between Rebecca and Finn was too corny for me. "
