The Shop on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber
Mira; April 27, 2003
My Rating: 5/5
Hello Friends! I finished The Shop on Blossom Street and as expected, Debbie Macomber had my emotions completely heightened and all over the place. I checked the audio version of this book out from my library via Overdrive and the last two chapters had me crying so hard while driving that I had to pull over and get myself together.
Bestselling romance author and ardent knitter Debbie Macomber combines both her skills in this novel about a newly opened Seattle yarn shop and the knitting class that brings four women together to make baby blankets.

I have a crazy tendency to stay where I’m comfortable and I expected this novel to take me WAY out of my comfort zone. Needless to say Friends.. that is exactly what it did. And it felt so good..I loved it!
“I believe you love me. I just don’t know if you’ll be able to stay with me. Out there, in the real world. And I—I deserve that.” As she said the words, she felt them lifting her spirits and her self-confidence. “I deserve that,” she repeated. “When shit goes down, storybook princes are unreliable. I need a man who’s going to stand by my side in the cold light of day. I can’t be someone’s secret anymore. I can’t carry the emotional load all by myself.”
