The New York Times bestselling sensation that's "Steel Magnolias set in Manhattan" (USA Today)-now in paperback.
Juggling the demands of her yarn shop and single-handedly raising a teenage daughter has made Georgia Walker grateful for her Friday Night Knitting Club. Her friends are happy to escape their lives too, even for just a few hours. But when Georgia's ex suddenly reappears, demanding a role in their daughter's life, her whole world is shattered.
Luckily, Georgia's friends are there, sharing their own tales of intimacy, heartbreak, and miracle making. And when the unthinkable happens, these women will discover that what they've created isn't just a knitting club: it's a sisterhood.
"The book's great-worth reading now." -- Glamour "If you are looking for an inviting group of gals to spend a few winter evenings with, pull up your afghan and snuggle in with The Friday Night Knitting Club...[It] makes you yearn for yarn, even if you're not a knitter." -- USA Today "Impossible to put down." -- Booklist "Knitters will enjoy seeing the healing power of stitching put into words.
