Description

There's a little shop on Blossom Street in Seattle called A Good Yarn. You go there to buy knitting supplies and patterns, and now it's offering a knitting class. The first lesson: how to knit a baby blanket.

For owner Lydia Hoffman, the shop represents her dream of beginning a new life free from the cancer that has ravaged her twice. A life that offers a chance at love, and maybe marriage.

Jacqueline Donovan is stuck in a marriage that has dwindled into an arrangement of separate rooms and separate lives. She disapproves of the woman married to her only son, but if she knits a baby blanket, she can at least pretend to like her pregnant daughter-in-law.

For Carol Girard, the baby blanket brings a message of hope as she and her husband make a final attempt at in vitro pregnancy.

And tense-looking Alix Townsend, that's Alix with an "i", is learning to knit her blanket for her court-ordered community service project.

Brought together by an age-old craft, these four women make unexpected discoveries, about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead to love, to friendship and acceptance, to laughter and dreams.

Critiques

"Clearly capturing each woman as she supports the others and searches for the answers to her own troubles, Emond outdoes herself in portraying counterculture proponent Alix....The warmth of Emond's voice so embodies the tenacious characters as to deliver a worthwhile story of change and hope."

Shop on Blossom Street

I have read this book in print before. But, the abridgment takes away a lot. If the full book were here, I would give it four stars, but the abridgement rates only one star.

Doing it again

I started listening to audio books 12 years ago. Blossom Street was one of the first series I listened too. Sometimes I just get in the mood for a series of stories I enjoy, thus the Blossom Street series where the most unlikely small group of women meet in a new yarn shop learning to knit a baby blanket. Each women has a distinct personality and life circumstances unlike any other in this small group, but learning to knit together ends up knitting them together. If you need a soft relaxing story then this one is for you. My life is very stressfull so I need a nice enjoyable story. Debbie always provides that.

Inspired me to take up a new craft

I'm normally a slow reader but this story kept my attention and I wanted more. It also led to find my own local knitting group and started knitting. I've met great people and patronize a few of my local businesses.

Debbie Macombre...

...has this way of bringing her characters to life in her writing. I love how I can plug in my earbuds and pretend to be in Seattle while I'm sweating it out on the treadmill in Georgia. Thank you for the endless hours of listening pleasure. Your books are music to my ears.

Comforting Story

What made the experience of listening to The Shop on Blossom Street the most enjoyable?

I get to listen to my audiobooks during my commute to and from work. Listening to this story takes you to another place and makes you 'feel good'

What other book might you compare The Shop on Blossom Street to and why?

I would compare it to the proceeding 2 books that follow this book - I didn't listen to this series in sequential order. Otherwise I can't say it compares to any other book I have read.

What about Linda Emond’s performance did you like?

She has a wonderful voice

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when Tammy Lee after the birth of her daughter told Jacquelyn the babies name. It was very touching!

Any additional comments?

When Lidia found out that the cancer had not recurred I could so much feel for her and her relief. Also the sister relationship between Margaret and Lidia was so interesting to hear how they grew closer and are now working together at the Yarn Shop.

nette Unterhaltung

The Shop on Blossom Street war mein erstes englischsprachiges Hörbuch. Die Sprecherin spricht deutlich, ausdrucksvoll und nicht zu schnell, so dass ich gut folgen konnte. Die Geschichte ist interessant, wenn auch zum Ende hin etwas unwahrscheinlich, wie sich wirklich alles zum Guten, nein, sogar zum Besten wendet. Aber das ist es doch, was man zur Unterhaltung manchmal liebt: Nette Geschichten mit ausdrucksvollen Charakteren und einem Happy-End.
