A RITA Award winner for Best Inspirational Romance, Beth Pattillo is a vibrant voice in faith fiction. Set in small-town Tennessee, this heartwarming tale features an ensemble of ladies transformed through the healing power of compassion.
Sweetgum's Knit Lit Society discusses literature and knitting but carefully avoids real problems. Merry's an overstressed mom with a crumbling marriage. Esther's picture-perfect life is blighted by her husband's desire for free-spirited Ruth. Camille's round-the-clock care for her ailing mom stifles her dreams. And Eugenie - the town's spinster librarian - mourns what might have been. But when a deeply troubled teen joins the group, her unique perspective and the enduring power of the classics they discuss trigger an unexpected outpouring of concern.
