Book - Back on Blossom Street / Susannah's Garden

Back on Blossom Street (The Knitting Books #3)… by Debbie Macomber
In this book, Debbie Macomber brings us back to the Good Yarn. Lydia, the owner and Margaret her sister run the yarn shop. Lydias knitting class this time around is to make a prayer shawl. Susannah, the new flower shop owner from next door, and Susannahs new employee, Colette have both signed up for the class. A face from the first book, Alix also joins this class. Alix is looking for a way to relax and take her mind off her wedding planning fiasco. Although good intentioned, Jacqueline, another charecter from the original book, is stressing Alix and Jordan about the wedding arrangements. During the course of the class, we see Margaret and her daughter Julia go through a tragic time, we also get a glipse of the troubles that made Colette leave her former job and work for Susannah.

This book was a little slower moving than some of Debbie Macomber other works, but the charecters are heartfelt and realistic. The thoughts and feelings of several are so intense and real that you can empathize with them. Overall, a good addition to the Blossom Street series. I am eager to try out the 2 prayer shawl patterns included in the front of the book.

Susannahs journey home to help her mom is a touching story about discovering and reconnecting with her past. Heartfelt and enjoyable read with many different relationships to explore.
