For every woman who has ever dreamed of starting over, or being a better mother, or just knitting a really nice scarf . . .
Jo Mackenzie needs a fresh start. Newly widowed with two young sons and a perilous bank balance, she leaves the bustle of London to take over her beloved Gran?s wool shop in her sleepy seaside hometown. There, she finds unexpected comfort in a ?Stitch and Bitch? knitting group that meets every week to trade gossip and, occasionally, a new stitch. When a new man enters Jo?s life, the knitting club has even more trouble confining the conversation to knit one, purl two. The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club is an uplifting, winning tale about the healing power of friendship and new beginnings.
