Knitting and life. They’re both about beginnings—and endings. That’s why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle’s Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It’s for people who want to quit something—or someone!—and start a new phase of their lives.

First to join is Phoebe Rylander. She recently ended her engagement to a man who doesn’t know the meaning of faithful, and she’s trying to get over him. Then there’s Alix Turner. She and her husband, Jordan, want a baby, which means she has to quit smoking. And Bryan Hutchinson joins the class because he needs a way to deal with the stress of running his family’s business—not to mention the lawsuit brought against him by an unscrupulous lawyer.

Life can be as complicated as a knitting pattern. Just ask Anne Marie Roche. She and her adopted daughter, Ellen, finally have the happiness they wished for. And then a stranger comes to her bookstore asking questions.

Or ask Lydia herself. Not only is she coping with her increasingly frail mother, but she and Brad have unexpectedly become foster parents to an angry, defiant twelve-year-old.

But as Lydia already knows, when life gets difficult and your stitches are snarled, your friends can always help!

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beth | 2/20/2014

    " This book was so predictable. I almost didn't finish this book either. The characters just whined. I could hardly keep the characters straight because I didn't even care about remembering their names. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 2/4/2014

    " These books are pretty predictable but they are good chick books. They really make me want to learn to knit or crochet. This book had a good story about foster kids. It was touching. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Autumnlady21 | 1/29/2014

    " Finished last night. It was a great read! As always, Debbie Macomber hits the mark for excellence. Her characters are lovable and real. They are easy to relate to, which makes for a wonderful storyline. I always look forward to the next book when Debbie has a series going. I highly recommend any of Debbie Macomber's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/25/2014

    " I didn't like it as much as the other "Blossom Street" Books. I love the characters in these books and I really liked the story but I felt like the author was a little lazy and predictable with the way this one ended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karan | 1/24/2014

    " This series has lots of charm, but also 'real' people with real situations. Good knitting patterns too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madelyn | 1/24/2014

    " A sweet story of real women with real problems. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tali | 1/17/2014

    " This was my second attempt at reading this book - the first time I just abandoned midway through because I was a little bored. I have to say the kind of repetitive feel I got from this book spoiled it for me. I've been gradually reading my way through this series and there's certain annoyances that keep cropping up to the point where I don't think I'll even fully enjoy the books, even though a part of me still wants to carry on and out what's going to happen to the characters, some of whom I'm more invested in than others.The main character Lydia though I still can't bond with - the very fact that every sentence in her point of view starts with "as a cancer survivor..." bothers me as it reduces her to that one aspect of her life and disease. The introduction of the male character Hutch though was a nice twist and I enjoyed his story probably more than those of the women. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 1/14/2014

    " Per usual Debbie Macomber leaves you wanting more... more of the characters lives and their future engagements. Just love her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/13/2014

    " This was given to me sometime ago and I finally got around to reading it. I enjoy her books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Acupp1 | 1/5/2014

    " This has been my favorite in this series so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 12/16/2013

    " Typical Debbie Macomber feel good book about the community of people who live, work and socialize on Blossom Street. If you have read one, you have read them all. They are comfortable and relaxing. As Macomber would say, like knitting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 The Styling Librarian | 11/23/2013

    " loved it, touching as always, enjoy popping into the lives of people on Blossom Street every time! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sbugsy | 11/21/2013

    " I finished my book. I will be sending the book to my sister. I love Debbie Macomber. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 11/17/2013

    " I have not read any of the other books in this series but that did not detract from a nice quick slice of life centered around a knitting store. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terimorse | 11/13/2013

    " If you are a knitter, you will enjoy this book. Knitting and friendship does go together. If you want to learn a new project, meet new friends, relieve stress, or just want to do something fun in the evenings, join a knitting class. The possibilities are endless, even the knitting projects. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 mmk4 Koenen | 11/4/2013

    " This will be my last Debbie Macomber for a while...to predicable and I feel I could write it. Simple read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jilll | 11/3/2013

    " A "feel good" easy read....I like happy endings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan Castillo | 11/1/2013

    " good but not really that good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lea | 10/4/2013

    " Another great addition to Blossom Street. Was glad to see old "friends" and meet some new ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill Henricksen | 7/17/2013

    " Loved this book and also a little sad that it is the last one so far. I hope she continues this series with a few more books because I feel like I just cut off a friendship with a bunch of wonderful ladies! It made me a little sad thinking that this was the last one, so hopefully she'll continue... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lbaker | 7/16/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 12/27/2012

    " An easy beach read. The "Knit to Quit" theme was a novel idea. I enjoyed this book but would not say I was challenged. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 8/24/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 8/2/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 6/22/2011

    " I really like the Blossom Street series. This has been my least favorite of the series because they were on the road so you didn't get to "catch up" on the past characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maureen | 6/21/2011

    " I couldn't have asked for a better ending, but I didn't like how the kids were put in the middle of their parent's troubles. These women took risks, bonded, grew, and learned much about themselves and each other, which made it fun to read. "
