My mother in law left this book at my house the last time she visited. I have thought about getting rid of it several times int he past year. I finally decided to just read it, since I am out of the usual books I read.
Pleasantly surprise I really like this book. I am really glad I picked it up. It is very easy reading. The story is about a gal who her entire life has fought and battled cancer as a girl growing up. Her father has passed away and her mother has failing health.. She decides to open a yarn store. She learned to knit and crochet during her chemo treatments from onther patient. She has grow to really enjoy this hobby. Her sister helps her with the shop and they have their ups and downs between them.
The main charater Lydia holds knitting classes. The women who take the classes have personal issues on why they have come. They have come to know each other and help each other through the tough times.
The story is an amazing plot between grandmas, older moms recently divorced and teenager in a new town. They come together and find a new begining. In the mist of this revelation amongst the women, is a fairy godfather. This man is making this come true for the women. One gets the money she needs to get her business off the ground, teenager get the money to get to her prom, and each of these ladies has a miracle perfromed for them.
But in the end it is just a great heart warming, down to earth story about women overcoming what life has dealt them.

The series is called Blossom Street. There are a total of 5 books in the series so far. I best be getting down to the library for the whole entire series and read it.
