The New York Times bestselling sensation that’s “Steel Magnolias set in Manhattan” (USA Today)

Walker & Daughter is Georgia Walker’s little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Its Friday night knitting club is improvised by some of Georgia’s regulars, who stroll into the shop looking for tips on knitting and end up finding much, much more. So now, once a week, they gather to work on their latest projects and to chat—and occasionally clash—over their stories of love, life, and everything in between.

However, unexpected changes soon throw these women’s lives into disarray, and the shop’s comfortable world gets shaken up like a snow globe. When the unthinkable happens, they realize that what they’ve created is not just a knitting club—its a sisterhood.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Carolyn Bunkley | 2/20/2014

    " I read it because it's the third of the series. i love the first, liked the second, and pushed through this one. It's ok, but like the last one, too much narrative commentary. I'd rather the author just let the characters bring out the points she wanted the readers to get instead of hitting us over the head with them. "

    " I enjoyed this book. Followed the lives of the women in the Knitting Club. Dakota is older (college) and struggling with life decisions. It was a nice little holiday book. No great literary masterpiece, but I don't think it was trying to be. Made me smile. Quick, easy read. "

    " By the time I figured out who all the characters were and what they were talking about, I found that I simply didn't care. "
