Lydia Hoffman opens a knitting shop where she also holds knitting classes. Participants include Eloise, a retired librarian, Courtney, a lonely teenager, and Bethanne, a single mother. Narrator Linda Emond imbues this audio with a sense of realism as her carefully modulated pitch changes reflect the various characters and their range of emotions. Emond provides each character with a distinctive voice, including those of Lydia's boyfriend, Brad, with his mellifluous tone, and Eloise's ex-husband, Maverick, who exudes charm with every word. Emond's expert storytelling highlights each character's ability to reinvent him or herself. The narrator's smooth, well-tempered pacing establishes this audio as an experience to be savored.
