Terribly manipulative. ( )

Fine, easy book to listen to while running / riding / doing chores when you don't need to hear every word. This book hit all the opportunities: single mom of inter-racial kid, romance over 70, an affair, reinvention of oneself, precocious daughter, cancer, and of course, return of that perfect lover. Phew. All made better by the "family of girlfriends" and knitting. ( )

I really enjoyed this very easy to read story about a young woman who gets pregnant when quite young and decides to raise her biracial baby on her own. It shows the value of good friends in times of hardship. It was so very enjoyable. ( )

rabck from sweetsangria; reminded me of Debbie Macomber's blossom street series. The book interweaves Georgia's single mom & knitting shop owner's life, with the lives of several women who become the core of the Friday Night knitting club, that's more women's circle friendship than getting any actual knitting done!

Book description
A group of plucky, crafty women in contemporary NYC meet at Manhattan yarn shop every Friday night to share knitting techniques and personal dramas. While the characters are not particularly well developed, the knitting details are interesting. Sadly, this story takes a melodramatic, tragic turn at the end precluding using the novel for a light, fun, "brain candy" recommendation. ljh 11/13/09

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425219097, Paperback)

The New York Times bestselling sensation that's "Steel Magnolias set in Manhattan" (USA Today)-now in paperback.

Juggling the demands of her yarn shop and single-handedly raising a teenage daughter has made Georgia Walker grateful for her Friday Night Knitting Club. Her friends are happy to escape their lives too, even for just a few hours. But when Georgia's ex suddenly reappears, demanding a role in their daughter's life, her whole world is shattered.

Luckily, Georgia's friends are there, sharing their own tales of intimacy, heartbreak, and miracle making. And when the unthinkable happens, these women will discover that what they've created isn't just a knitting club: it's a sisterhood.
