You might have heard about a wonderful little yarn store in downtown Seattle. Whether this is a return visit or your very first, you'll find that A Good Yarn is a place of welcome and warmth. A place where women feel at home. Where they're among friends, old and new . . .
The first person you'll meet is Lydia Hoffman, who owns the shop. 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.
Elise Beaumont, a retired librarian, joins one of Lydia's popular knitting classes. Since losing her life savings Elise has been living with her daughter, Aurora - the only positive legacy from her brief marriage to professional gambler Marvin 'maverick' Beaumont. Now she learns that her one-time husband plans to visit and that Aurora wants a relationship with her father . . .
Bethanne Hamlin, like Elise, is facing the fallout from divorce. But her husband left her for another woman - not a pack of cards - and she's struggling to reshape her life. She joins the knitting class at her children's urging; it's the first step in her effort to recover a sense of dignity and hope . . .
Like so many women, these three find companionship and comfort in each other and in this age-old craft. Who would've thought that knitting socks could change your life? . . .
