I enjoyed this book, the first in a series. It's a Christian/Inspirational book about a group of young women who banded together to get them through their cancer treatments. Similar to Brashare's Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, the story's taken up by each member of the sisterhood, as they add their comments to a book.

It's nice that the story deals realistically with the troubles in their lives, revealing their history, fears, and hopes for the future.
This book was a pleasant surprise. I like to find books that involve knitting since I am a knitter. This one actually did not have much to do about knitting but the characterization was good and I found it thought provoking from a Christian standpoint.
This is a very sweet story about four young women who became like sisters as they supported each other while going through the emotions of dealing with and surviving cancer. Now, years later, they continue to encourage each other. The relationships between the girls seem very genuine and real, and I enjoyed it very much. It is not a depressing book at all, actually quite uplifting. The idea of writing it as a journal that is written mainly by Marilee, but sometimes gets passed to the others, wor ...more
I read the 3rd book first and this is the 1st book.

I was not going to read more of these but I'm waiting for the first Dry Creek series books to come from my Paperbackswap.

I don't enjoy one sided books as much but I really did enjoy this book and the other one. Maybe I will get the rest of this series as well to read.

This is a story about a group of girls all diagnosed with cancer as teenagers who started a knitting club. They used this time, not only to knit, but to fellowship and help one another through the hard times as well. It is more inspiration than romance, but romance is indeed found as each girl works toward different goals.

Awww, I remember this one! Ok to be perfectly honest all Love Inspired novels are kinda cheesey, but they are good to help you relax and they are quite humerous at times. And sometimes the author does make you think.
Great mini series and especially poignant for anyone who's been toughed by cancer. Also will be appreciated by fans of knitting.

Very sweet really enjoyed looking forward to other books in the series!
