11. The Knitting Circle

I stayed up until 2 a.m. to finish the last 100 pages of this wonderful book. Hood allows us to experience the growth and acceptance of these women, who have only become "friends" through a knitting circle that meets weekly at the little knit shop. Each woman has lost something and Hood, through the main character, allows us to discover what the loss is and how it has affected the life of each character. While there is some sadness in reading this book, particularly if you have lost something as these women, there is great hope in the friendships and exchanges between these women. I would recommend each woman to read the book and then find such a group of women.

TITLE: The Knitting Circle
AUTHOR: Ann Hood
PAGES: 352
