After the sudden loss of Stella, her only child, Mary Baxter joins a knitting circle in Providence, Rhode Island. Seeking a way to fill the empty hours and lonely days, she little realizes that the circle will change her life. Alice, Scarlet, Lulu, Beth, Harriet, and Ellen welcome Mary into their circle despite her reluctance to open her heart to them. Each woman teaches Mary a new knitting technique, and, as they do, they reveal to her their own personal stories of loss, love, and hope. Eventually, through the hours they spend knitting and talking together, Mary is finally able to tell her own story of grief. In doing so, she reclaims her love for her husband, faces the hard truths about her relationship with her mother, and finds the spark of life again.

ANN HOOD is the author of seven novels and a short-story collection. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island.From AudioFile:
THE KNITTING CIRCLE develops like the practice of knitting itself--there are familiar patterns and recurring steps that are revealed as the plot unfolds. Protagonist Mary joins a knitting circle as a distraction after her daughter's sudden death. The people she meets there help her to come to terms with her tragedy. Hillary Huber is a capable reader whose strength lies in her phrasing and her use of a well-timed pause. Her voice is at its most pleasing when she uses it as a tool for narration rather than assuming the voices of the many characters. The novel is fraught with metaphors that liken knitting to life, and those comparisons neatly parallel each circle member's history.
