In this uplifting anthology, Macomber (Between Friends), Mallery (Someone Like You), and Skye (Bound by Dreams) spin three yarns related to a passion for knitting and accompanied by appropriate knitting patterns. In "The Twenty-First Wish," 10-year-old knitter Ellen yearns for her birth father to marry her adoptive mother. For Robyn in "Coming Unraveled," knitting had been a way of life until she pursued her dream of starring on Broadway. After the dream fades, Robyn's return to her grandma's home and knitting store puts her on a new path toward the handsome and enigmatic T.J. In "Return to Summer Island," a car accident badly damages Caro's hand and arm. As she recovers, she finds solace in knitting and unexpected romance with a charismatic Marine about to deploy to Afghanistan. These simple and pleasant romances will warm readers' hearts. (Apr.)
