The Sweetgum Ladies Knit for Love

Post a comment by Sept 1st and you can have a chance to win this book!

Knit one, purl two, read more, and love greatly.

Once a month, the six women of Sweetgum Knit Lit Society gather to discuss books and share their knitting projects. Inspired by her recently-wedded bliss, group leader Eugenie chooses "Great Love Stories in Literature" as the theme for the year's reading list. A risky selection for a group whose members span as the spectrum of age and relationship status.
As the Knit Ladies read and discuss classic romances like Romeo and Juliet, Wuthering Heights, and Pride and Prejudice, each member is confronted with her own perception about love. Camille's unexpected reunion with an old crush forces her to address conflicting desires. Newly widowed Esther finds her role in Sweetgum changing and is surprised by two unlikely friends. Hannah isn't sure she's ready for the trials of her first love. Newcomer Maria finds her life turned upside down by increasing family obligations and a handsome, arrogant lawyer; and Eugenie and Merry are both asked to make sacrifices for their husbands their challenge their principles.
Even in a sleepy, southern town like Sweetgum, Tennesse, love isn't easy. The Knit Ladies learn they can find strength and guidance in novels they read, the love of their families, their community-and especially in each other.

Beth Pattillo learned to knit in second grade. She is the author of nine books including Heavens to Besty and Jane Austen Ruined My Life. Beth lives with her husband and children in Tennessee.
