FNKC starts out slow but really gains some steam once all of the characters are identified. It is a realistic story of a single-mother who starts her own business. The story follows her as she makes friends, learns who she is, and becomes hugely successful in life as well as business. I really liked that it's not all happiness and fluff but some real-life situations. There are also several side stories going on at once with each member of the Knitting Club. Jacobs does a great job of switching point of view without confusing the reader, as well as keeping the focus on the main characters, Walker and Daughter. The ages of the characters range from a 12 year-old girl to a 72 year old woman and there is a little something for everyone. I am really interested to read the second installment of this series. You can purchase this book on Amazon or put it on your wish list on Paperback Swap. And seriously, this book makes me consider learning how to knit - like I need another hobby! Have you read this book? What did you think?
