While many longtime readers are familiar with Debbie Macomber's sweet romances, she is also a versatile and prolific author of stories about women's lives and their relationships. Most of these are loosely connected series set in small-town communities. Macomber also incorporates gentle humor into her fiction.
To participate in the pleasures of Macomber's old-fashioned, feel-good stories, start with the recent Knitting series. In the first, The Shop on Blossom Street, Macomber deftly combines the domestic pleasures of knitting with the compelling stories of her female characters: generations of women, including a cancer survivor (the shop's owner), who find satisfaction and resolution to life's problems under the spell of knitting, conversation, and friendship.
