Overview
#1 "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER
Debbie Macomber returns to Seattle's beloved Blossom Street in this heartfelt tale of friendship, renewal, and discovering what's truly important in life.
For years Libby Morgan dreamed only of making partner in her competitive, high-pressure law firm. She sacrificed everything for her career--her friends, her marriage, her chance at creating a family. When her boss calls Libby into his office, she assumes it will finally be good news, but nothing can prepare her for the shocking reality: She's been let go and must rebuild her entire life . . . starting now.
With no job prospects in sight, Libby reaches out to old friends and spends her afternoons at A Good Yarn, the local knitting store. There she forms a close bond with Lydia, the sweet-natured shop owner; Lydia's spirited teenage daughter, Casey; and Casey's best friend, Ava, a shy yet troubled girl who will shape Libby's future in surprising and profound ways.
As A Good Yarn becomes a second home--and the women a new kind of family--Libby relishes the different person she's become. She even finds time for romance with a charming and handsome doctor who seems to be her perfect match. But just as everything is coming together, Libby must make a choice that could forever change the life she holds so dear.
Warmly told and richly textured, "Starting Now "is filled with the promise of new beginnings and the unending delights of companionship and love.

Macomber’s latest (after The Inn at Rose Harbor) is a by-the-numbers tale of midlife crisis and renewal. High-powered attorney Libby Morgan has abandoned her friends and marriage in order to make partner at her firm. One morning, in the sixth year of her eight-year partnership track, her boss lets her go, offering Libby some advice: “take this time to find some balance in life.” Rather than following his advice, Libby looks for another job, but soon decides to reconnect with old friend Robin and take up knitting again, which leads her to Ava, a troubled, pregnant teen. Helping Ava leads Libby to Dr. Phillip Stone, another workaholic attempting to re-evaluate his life. Libby decides to open her own law practice, which would give her time to spend with Stone, Ava, and her friend. But when a tantalizing offer comes from her old firm, she may drop everything and return to her old ways. While the narrative thread of Ava’s pregnancy is an unexpected addition, Libby and Stone are archetypes who come with no surprises. Readers have read this story too many times. Theresa Park, Park Literary. (Apr.)
