The Friday Night Knitting Club

Last holiday season, my aunt got me two books, because she knows what I bookworm I am. So I reread (while reading another book called The Host, which I am about one day away from being done with, and will be blogging about then) The Friday Night Knitting Club. It is such a great but sad read, but I highly recommend it.

In the book, there is this mom, Georgia, who runs a knitting store while trying to raise her daughter by herself. Her daughter, Dakota, is an avid baker and loves to try out new treats on the knitting group that meets in her moms store every Friday night. But after many years of absence, Dakota's father suddenly reappears and wants a role in his daughters life. So, Georgia reluctantly allows James to get involved and do things with Dakota. Things get more and more complicated between Georgia and James while the novel progresses. There are a lot of really hilarious moments in the book that make you laugh, but there are also some very sad moments that will make your heart go out to these characters.

Overall, I would suggest this book, even to people who aren't knitters. It is well worth the read.
