Book Review

BACK ON BLOSSOM STREET
by Debbie Macomber

Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction

RT Rating

Macomber's latest is simply delightful. Alternating chapters between her characters -- the connecting thread being Lydia's first-person musings -- Macomber paints the tragicomedy of each woman's life with delicate but colorful strokes.

Lydia Goetz runs a successful store on Blossom Street, A Good Yarn, with her sister, Margaret. Life isn't stress-free by any means -- their mother isn't well, and Margaret's daughter is the victim of a carjacker. As Lydia begins a new knitting class, her friends are also cause for concern. Alix, a baker, feels that her upcoming wedding to minister Jordan Turner has snowballed out of her control. Colette, a young widow, is attracted to her ex-boss -- even though she fears he's a criminal! Through it all, Lydia offers tea, sympathy and knitting tips, just what's needed.
