Publisher's Summary

It's been 10 months since Jack died, and Sandra, a tightly wound academic, copes with her grief by immersing herself in the history of textiles. When she and Martha, a gifted knitter, meet over an unconscious body on the footpath, the unlikely threads of their lives tangle into each other. Sandra invites Martha to join her in a professional collaboration, but what begins as a working relationship becomes something deeply personal. Martha seems at ease with herself, in spite of her own experience of grief. But what does she carry around in those three large bags?


What the Critics Say

"A brief, sweetly winning tale." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Bartlett has created an enthralling story about the healing power of friendship." (Library Journal)
"Enriched by knitting details, each stitch along the way seems unremarkable, but the finished product has a subtle beauty." (The Washington Post)

A wonderful story by Anne Bartlett.

Thoroughly enjoyed this story brought very much to life by Beverley Dunn. An excellent voice. Any yarn crafter will love this, I'm an avid crocheter and I felt the author totally understood the textile world.
My favourite bit was when Martha takes the doctor by the arm and has a little word, classic !! Hope it becomes a film one day. Thanks x x
