This isn't a spoiler since the information is on the back cover of this book but I have always wondered how a parent survives the loss of a child. It goes against the natural order of life and for me I think any way that a parent can get through the pain to some semblance of life after a loss and perhaps happiness is okey. For Mary Baxter, the protagonist in the Knitting Circle, putting needles and thread together is at first just a technique to take her mind off the death of her adorable daughter. The knitting circle she becomes a part of includes women who all carry their own sorrows and through their stories and knitting knowledge as well as time she not only learns to knit but to cobble together a life without her only child.

This is a touching story of healing and redemtion; among other things it made me want to learn how to knit.
