The Friday Night Knitting Club product reviews

A charming and moving novel about female friendship and the experiences that knit us together-even when we least expect it.

Walker and Daughter is Georgia Walker's little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club was started by some of Georgia's regulars, who gather once a week to work on their latest projects and to chat-and occasionally clash-over their stories of love, life, and everything in between.

Georgia has her hands full, juggling the demands of running the store and raising her spunky teen daughter, Dakota, by herself. Thank goodness for Anita, her mentor and dear friend, and the rest of the members of the knitting club-who are just as varied as the skeins of yarn in the shop's bins. There's Peri, a prelaw student turned handbag designer; Darwin, a somewhat aloof feminist grad student; and Lucie, a petite, quiet woman who's harboring some secrets of her own.

However, unexpected changes soon throw these women's lives into disarray, and the shop's comfortable world gets shaken up like a snow globe. James, Georgia's ex, decides that he wants to play a larger role in Dakota's life-and possibly Georgia's as well. Cat, a former friend from high school, returns to New York as a rich Park Avenue wife and uneasily renews her old bond with Georgia. Meanwhile, Anita must confront her growing (and reciprocated) feelings for Marty, the kind neighborhood deli owner. And when the unthinkable happens, they realize what they've created: not just a knitting club, but a sisterhood

Welcome to Walker and Daughter where you will meet the most unlikely group of friends who form the members of the knitting club. Some of the people are trying to escape and some are having to face reality and come to terms with decisions made a lifetime ago and the effects they are having in their lives now.

I really enjoyed this book as it could be a situation I would find myself in, this book is about friendship and companionship. I enjoyed reading what happened to the characters and why they were reacting a certain way to the situation, laughing at some things as it has happened in my life or I could picture it like I was actually there. There were some surprises and the death of a main character was certainly one. The characters are strong and weak at the same time, they make mistakes and count on friends to help them out and the unconditional bond that friendship offers.

I'm currently reading the sequel and it is just as good as the first book, a real page turner.
