Synopsis

A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber

When times are tough, confiding in friends can change your life.

Cancer survivor Lydia’s business is thriving but her dream-man’s ex is threatening their relationship…

Retired, self-contained Elise has lost everything and lives with her daughter, but still has disturbingly strong feelings for her gambling ex-husband.

Nervous Bethanne is an unwilling divorcée whose husband left her and their children for a younger woman. She urgently needs a job, but has she the confidence to find one?

Lonely teenager, Courtney, feels abandoned too. Grieving over her mother’s death, she has put on weight and dreads starting a new school.

This uplifting, heart-warming story proves that however bleak the future may look, the importance of friendship should never be underestimated.
