The Shop on Blossom Street

Audiobook

Four lives knit together...

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.

Performed by Linda Emond
