"An intelligent, moving read" (Pages) and "a testament to women’s friendship and to Ann Hood’s talent" (Hilma Wolitzer).

After the loss of her only child, Mary Baxter finds herself unable to read or write, the activities that used to be her primary source of comfort. She reluctantly joins a knitting circle as a way to fill her lonely days—not knowing it will change her life. As they teach Mary new knitting techniques, the women in the circle also reveal their own secrets of loss, love, and hope. With time, Mary is finally able to tell her own story of grief, and in so doing finds the spark of life again.

Circle of life…

Not my knitting story at all but spoke to me, explaining things in my own journey.

The Knitting Circle

Draws heavily on her autobiographical account of her daughters tragic death. Hood's examination of the internal landscape of loss is profoundly moving.
