Description

A place of welcome and warmth, of friends old and new. Discover how knitting can change your life!Lydia
Hoffman owns the shop on Blossom Street. In the year since it opened, A Good Yarn has thrived--and so
has Lydia. A lot of that is due to Brad Goetz. But when Brad's ex-wife reappears, Lydia is suddenly afraid
to trust her newfound happiness.Three women join Lydia's newest class. Elise Beaumont, retired and
bitterly divorced, learns that her onetime husband is reentering her life. Bethanne Hamlin is facing the
fallout from a much more recent divorce. And Courtney Pulanski is a depressed and overweight teenager,
whose grandmother's idea of helping her is to drag her to seniors' swim sessions--and to the knitting
class at A Good Yarn.
Author Bio
Debbie Macomber
<br><br>Through both words and deeds, Debbie Macomber inspires women from all walks of life to
realize their dreams.<br><br>Debbie Macomber overcame the obstacles in her own life to become one of
the world's most popular writers. She encourages women to achieve the goals that burn in their hearts as
fiercely as the desire to become a bestselling novelist did in her own 15 years ago.<br><br>When Debbie
first decided to write a novel, people called her a hopeless dreamer. She had only a high school degree
and was dyslexic. She was also the very young mother of four active children. No one believed she had
what it took to write a book--except Debbie. She eventually saved enough money to rent an old

was returned, stamped "rejected." As tough as it was to keep her spirits alive, Debbie never gave up. Five
long years and thousands of pages later, she received a letter in the afternoon mail. The letter was from
Silhouette Books--and they wanted to buy her story. Her first novel, Heartsong, was published as a
Silhouette Inspiration in 1984, and it became the first romance novel ever to be reviewed in Publishers
Weekly.<br><br>Today, Debbie is the internationally acclaimed author of more than 100 novels. Popular
around the globe, she receives approximately three thousand letters from readers every month. And she
responds personally to each one.<br><br>In lectures around the country, Debbie encourages women to
"exercise the success muscle." She also offers advice on how to achieve success in seeking or changing
a career, building family relationships, forming healthy relationships and more.<br><br>Is it any wonder
that Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America appointed Debbie an ambassador for the national office in 1997?
