Lydia Goetz is the owner of The Good Yarn and married to Brad. With the onset of spring, Lydia looks forward to starting her knitting class but sometimes with the good, comes the bad as she soon finds tragedy in doses.

Collette Blake is new to Blossom Street. She moves into Lydia’s upstairs apartment. As a recent widow, she is glad to join the knitting class but the newcomer has secrets that still leave bad memories of a past.

As Lydia waits for the others to show up for the knitting class, her mind ponders on the new patterns that arrived as she thinks on her friends. It has been three years since she met Collette. The young woman was going through a rough time with the loss of her husband, a policeman who died in the line of duty. Lydia always saw a bit of herself in Collette. With the growing community, Lydia is happy people have signed up for the knitting class. Susanna Nelson, the owner of a recent flower shop signs up for the class. Alix Towsend signs up for the knitting class, as her mother-in-law insists on having a strong say in Alix’s upcoming wedding. Lydia’s sister, Margaret has her own worries when her daughter, Julia, is involved in a car-jacking. Each incident seems to bring on struggles that seem to encircle the women and allow them to become a close-knit family.

Back on Blossom Street is a story that connects with the reader. In this great spinning tale, there are many numerous characters that give the novel a satisfying delightful read. I was caught up in the emotions each person shared. Debbie Macomber always pens great stories that are uplifting, and often lend a great point, leaving a smile on the lips and a joyful tear in the eye. She creates a beautiful story where this reader joins in the knitting class and the relationship that continues to live on Blossom Street. I loved the theme of the story and all the characters that come into play.
