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.

In a poignant tale that prompts both tears and laughter, Linda Stephens' magnificent narration highlights the simple eloquence of Pattillo's central theme: Sharing the burdens of others puts our own in perspective - and makes them all easier to bear. Download and start listening now!

    " Good book, just a bit on the cheesy side and everything wraps up a little too nicely for me in the end given the time frame. "

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

    " Reminded me a lot of the early Mitford books by Jan Karon - but with a bit more reality. Great tie-ins with other classic books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 1/1/2014

    " I read it as a book club selection. It was light reading and a little on the "sweet" side, but enjoyable and some good character development eventually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 12/26/2013

    " A light read that deals with heavy topics. The characters are well-defined, the problems they face realistic, and the story lines interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikki | 12/23/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lynda | 12/7/2013

    " I did not finish this one. I didn't find any of the characters interesting. It was similar to Debbie Macombers Blossom Street series but not nearly as good or as well developed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/2/2013

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

    " I think this will be a fun series to read. You get to know each of the main characters quite well and become engaged in their lives. I just wish the name of the of the book was Knit AND Lit Society--it would make for a smoother title read. "

    " A sweet and cozy book. When I started it, I was reminded of the atmosphere in the Mitford books. I don't knit, but I read, in fact I read a lot, so this book was right up my alley! One think is sure, I'll have to read those children classics! And maybe one day I'll try my hand at knitting! "
