Summer on Blossom StreetLarge Print - 2009
Knitting and life are both about beginnings and endings. That's why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle's Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It's for people who want to quit something -- or someone -- and start a new phase of their lives.
Phoebe Bylander has recently dumped an unfaithful fiancé. Since Alix Turner and her husband have decided to try for a baby, she has to quit smoking. Bryan Jordan needs a way to decompress from running his family's business -- and to escape from the stress of a lawsuit brought against him by an unscrupulous lawyer. Life certainly can be complicated. Lydia herself is in the midst of upheaval. Her mother is becoming increasingly frail, and she and Brad have unexpectedly become foster parents to an angry and defiant twelve-year-old. But Lydia already knows that when life gets difficult, your friends can always help.
Baker & Taylor
As new clients, including a woman recovering from a broken engagement and a lawyer fighting to save his career, find friendship in her knitting class, Lydia Goetz deals with her own share of drama when a stranger comes to her bookstore stirring up trouble.
