About this product
- DescriptionNEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER USA TODAY BESTSELLER Reader to reader, knitter to knitter: You re going to love this book. Debbie Macomber For fans of Jennifer Chiaverini and Sarah Addison Allen, The Wishing Thread is an enchanting vel about the bonds between sisters, the indelible pull of the past, and the transformational power of love. The Van Ripper women have been the talk of Tarrytown, New York, for centuries. Some say they re angels; some say they re crooks. In their tumbledown Stitchery, t far from the stomping grounds of the legendary Headless Horseman, the Van Ripper sisters Aubrey, Bitty, and Meggie are said to knit people s most ardent wishes into beautiful scarves and mittens, granting them health, success, or even a blossoming romance. But for the magic to work, sacrifices must be made and one kws that better than the Van Rippers. When the Stitchery matriarch, Mariah, dies, she leaves the yarn shop to her three nieces. Aubrey, shy and reliable, has dedicated her life to weaving spells for the community, though her sisters have long stayed away. Bitty, pragmatic and persistent, has always been skeptical of magic and wants her children to have a rmal, nmagical life. Meggie, restless and free-spirited, follows her own set of rules. Now, after Mariah s death forces a reunion, the sisters must reassess the state of their lives even as they decide the fate of the Stitchery. But their relationships with one ather and their beliefs in magic are put to the test. Will the threads hold? Praise for The Wishing Thread With deft needlework, a dash of folklore, and some good old-fashioned family angst, Lisa Van Allen knits together the threads of second chances, the pleasure of giving, the complications of sisterhood, and love. There s a bit of magic in The Wishing Thread, in the words and the story as well as in the yarn. Meg Waite Clayton, author of The Wednesday Sisters Rich in myth and mystery, The Wishing Thread explores the tangle that is being a woman from family and friendship to romance and community. Prepare to be ensnared, enthralled, enchanted! USA Today bestselling author Christie Ridgway The Wishing Thread is a lyrical, emotional, finely knit portrayal of three sisters struggling with love, magic and sacrifice. This is the best book I ve read all year. Lisa Verge Higgins, author of The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship An intriguing story of three sisters tied by blood and a strange inheritance, each searching for a way to belong in that place where magic and life intersect. Wonderful! Shelley Noble, author of Beach Colors Van Allen knits together this pleasantly entertaining tale as easily as the Van Ripper women knit together the often unraveling threads of people s lives. . . . Chick-lit cozy meets magical realism with inevitably warm and fuzzy results. Booklist Fans of magical realism will want to pick up this enjoyable vel, which t only weaves magic through stitchery, but also weaves a realistic story about family and sisterhood and the threads that pull us back home.
