The Shop On Blossom Street
By Debbie Macomber

Performed by Linda Emond

      Lydia Hoffman is celebrating life after having survived cancer twice. She is living out her dream of owning a business after purchasing a knitting shop. It’s located on Blossom Street in Seattle and is called A Good Yarn. Wanting to share the warmth of her shop, she offers a class on how to knit a baby blanket. Through this class she’s able to open her doors to three special people.

     Jacqueline Donovan is involved in a loveless marriage and disproves of the woman her son married. Now the couple is expecting their first child, and she takes the class in order to cover her true feelings.

     Carol Girard is desperate to have a baby. In vitro pregnancy is her last hope for having a child, and the blanket is a symbol of greater things to come.

   Alix Townsend is taking the class to satisfy a court-ordered community service project. The stress of everyday life is visible in her haunted eyes.

   The small shop on Blossom Street is a haven for the group. It demonstrates how one person’s dreams can have such an impact on the lives of others. Four strong and courageous women are about to gain strength from one another to help them conquer the obstacles that threaten their own lives.

    I grew up reading Debbie Macomber’s books and have always held her in high regard. Her writing is filled with such deep emotion that it can't help but melt the reader’s heart. She is definitely one of the all time legends of the romance industry. Very highly recommended.
