THE KNITTING CIRCLE develops like the practice of knitting itself—there are familiar patterns and recurring steps that are revealed as the plot unfolds. Protagonist Mary joins a knitting circle as a distraction after her daughter’s sudden death. The people she meets there help her to come to terms with her tragedy. Hillary Huber is a capable reader whose strength lies in her phrasing and her use of a well-timed pause. Her voice is at its most pleasing when she uses it as a tool for narration rather than assuming the voices of the many characters. The novel is fraught with metaphors that liken knitting to life, and those comparisons neatly parallel each circle member’s history.
