The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs

Juggling the demands of her yarn shop and single-handedly raising a teenage daughter has made Georgia Walker grateful for her Friday Night Knitting Club. Her friends are happy to escape their lives too, even for just a few hours. But when Georgia's ex suddenly reappears, demanding a role in their daughter's life, her whole world is shattered.

Luckily, Georgia's friends are there, sharing their own tales of intimacy, heartbreak, and miracle making. And when the unthinkable happens, these women will discover that what they've created isn't just a knitting club: it's a sisterhood.

This book got all the great reviews but somehow I was left abit disappointed .... Not that it is a bad book to read just I didn't get the real emotion of the book ... It is an easy read but felt that there was just something missing ... The general concept of the novel is great and there are some nice characters especially Anita who I loved ... She was a motherly figure and really sweet ...

Georgia's character shows that even by oneself with a child you can pull through the other end with the support of friends ... And create a successful business to boot ...

It is a little Light hearted read and would be perfect for the beach or holiday read ....

I rate this book 3***

If you are a fan of Kate Jacobs ... the second part is on sale at the end of November

And there is now talk that it is getting made into a movie with Julie Robert playing Georgia Walker ... Mike Binder is adapting the book and it is in production ... Due for release in 2010.
