The Sweetgum Ladies Knit for Love by


I read the first book about the Sweetgum Ladies and fell in love with each and every one. This book is just as good as the first and can even stand alone. The love that each one of these ladies has for the other and the bond that they have is something to be greatly admired. If you are looking for a fun and easy read that will make you appreciate those friends that you are blessed with, this is the read for you.


Once a month, the six women of the Sweetgum Knit Lit Society gather to discuss books and share their knitting projects.

Inspired by her recently-wedded bliss, group leader Eugenie chooses “Great Love Stories in Literature” as the theme for the year’s reading list–a risky selection for a group whose members span the spectrum of age and relationship status.As the Knit Lit ladies read and discuss classic romances like Romeo and Juliet, Wuthering Heights, and Pride and Prejudice, each member is confronted with her own perception about love.

Camille’s unexpected reunion with an old crush forces her to confront conflicting desires. Newly widowed Esther finds her role in Sweetgum changing and is surprised by two unlikely friends. Hannah isn’t sure she’s ready for the trials of first love. Newcomer Maria finds her life turned upside-down by increasing family obligations and a handsome, arrogant lawyer, and Eugenie and Merry are both asked to make sacrifices for their husbands that challenge their principles.

Even in a sleepy, southern town like Sweetgum, Tennessee, love isn’t easy. The Knit Lit ladies learn they can find strength and guidance in the novels they read, the love of their family, their community–and especially in each other.
