Beschreibung

There's a little shop on Blossom Street in Seattle called A Good Yarn. You go there to buy knitting supplies and patterns, and now it's offering a knitting class. The first lesson: how to knit a baby blanket. For owner Lydia Hoffman, the shop represents her dream of beginning a new life free from the cancer that has ravaged her twice. A life that offers a chance at love, and maybe marriage. Jacqueline Donovan is stuck in a marriage that has dwindled into an arrangement of separate rooms and separate lives. She disapproves of the woman married to her only son, but if she knits a baby blanket, she can at least pretend to like her pregnant daughter-in-law. For Carol Girard, the baby blanket brings a message of hope as she and her husband make a final attempt at in vitro pregnancy. And tense-looking Alix Townsend, that's Alix with an "i", is learning to knit her blanket for her court-ordered community service project. Brought together by an age-old craft, these four women make unexpected discoveries, about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead to love, to friendship and acceptance, to laughter and dreams.

Kritikerstimmen

"Clearly capturing each woman as she supports the others and searches for the answers to her own troubles, Emond outdoes herself in portraying counterculture proponent Alix....The warmth of Emond's voice so embodies the tenacious characters as to deliver a worthwhile story of change and hope."

nette Unterhaltung

The Shop on Blossom Street war mein erstes englischsprachiges Hörbuch. Die Sprecherin spricht deutlich, ausdrucksvoll und nicht zu schnell, so dass ich gut folgen konnte. Die Geschichte ist interessant, wenn auch zum Ende hin etwas unwahrscheinlich, wie sich wirklich alles zum Guten, nein, sogar zum Besten wendet. Aber das ist es doch, was man zur Unterhaltung manchmal liebt: Nette Geschichten mit ausdrucksvollen Charakteren und einem Happy-End.
