"But just so you know that we are, each one of us...held together by the invisible threads of our histories. ...But these strings are all the good and all the bad that our families ever experienced. And when the world tries to pull you loose - and it will - there may be some stretch. But someone like you, with so much love holding her together, will never fall apart." -The Friday Night Knitting Club, p. 229, by Kate Jacobs
I don't love the profanity in this book, but so far I am liking the story and the characters and the way it is told and of course the parts about knitting! Only slightly more than halfway through, so we'll see how it goes.
