A Life in Stitches Book Excerpt:

A warm, funny and moving memoir about how a passion for knitting has marked the milestones of a woman's life, from surviving a typhoon to finding true love. From creating her very first sweater, an electric blue disaster that led to an unlikely bonding between father and daughter to the yellow afghan that caused a breakup (and, ultimately, a breakthrough) and discovering that her love of knitting pales next to actual, true love, Rachael Herron's ability to spin wonderful yarns full of love, loss and laughter is addictive. Whether she's huddled with her cat Digit after an close encounter in a treehouse or reminiscing about her mother's idyllic New Zealand childhood while keeping vigil at her bedside, Herron shows that when life unravels there's always a way to knit it back together again, often into something even better. 'Rachael Herron is a writer with an open heart. I feel it in her novels. In A LIFE IN StItCHES, I got a deeper look into that heart, and I love what I saw there. It's an honest, fascinating, warm-hug of a memoir.' Amy Singer, Knitty.com 'Even though I'm a lousy knitter with only a few crooked scarves to my name, I was captivated, delighted and touched by every chapter.' Erin Bried, author of How to Sew a Button 'Weaves together a life rich in family, romance, and enough electric blue yarn to knit her first sweater at age eleven ... I'm inspired to be as bold and as generous as the knitters in her life.' Catherine Friend, author of Sheepish:

Summary of Rachael Herron s A Life in Stitches Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I was never a Daddy’s girl. I loved my father, but I didn’t understand him. He was an aspiring entrepreneur, and he always believed a million-dollar idea was just around the corner. He loved cruising neighborhoods in our VW van, looking for garage sale signs. #2 I was eager to learn how to knit a whole sweater, using the pattern as my tutor. I was close to finishing, but I couldn’t make the instructions make sense to me. I ended up just looping the yarn over the needle and hoping for the best. #3 I made a sweater that was three sizes too big for me, and it was ugly. I was so nervous to show it to my father, who had high hopes for me. I dropped a few stitches right at the bust line, and I thought it would be fine to sew them closed with white thread. #4 My father, who had started and scrapped at least four new businesses since the start of that year, thought I’d done something great. I realized that starting things and finishing them was what gave him the most satisfaction.

Stitches Book Excerpt:

The New York Times bestseller from the author of Dusk, Night, Dawn, Hallelujah Anyway, Bird by Bird, and Almost Everything “Lamott’s …most insightful book yet, Stitches offers plenty of her characteristic witty wisdom…this slim, readable volume [is] a lens on life, widening and narrowing, encouraging each reader to reflect on what it is, after all, that really matters.”—People What do we do when life lurches out of balance? How can we reconnect to one other and to what’s sustaining, when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable? These questions lie at the heart of Stitches, Lamott’s profound follow-up to her New York Times–bestselling Help, Thanks, Wow. In this book Lamott explores how we find meaning and peace in these loud and frantic times; where we start again after personal and public devastation; how we recapture wholeness after loss; and how we locate our true identities in this frazzled age. We begin, Lamott says, by collecting the ripped shreds of our emotional and spiritual fabric and sewing them back together, one stitch at a time. It’s in these stitches that the quilt of life begins, and embedded in them are strength, warmth, humor, and humanity.

The New Life Book Excerpt:

'I read a book one day, and my whole life was changed.' So begins The New Life, Orhan Pamuk's fabulous road novel about a young student who yearns for the life promised by a dangerously magical book. On his remarkable journey, he falls in love, abandons his studies, turns his back on home and family, and embarks on restless bus trips through the provinces, in pursuit of an elusive vision. This is a wondrous odyssey, laying bare the rage of an arid heartland, from the bestselling author of My Name is Red and Snow. In coffee houses with black-and-white TV sets, on buses where passengers ride watching B-movies on flickering screens, in wrecks along the highway, in paranoid fictions with spies as punctual as watches, the magic of Pamuk's creation comes alive. From a writer compared to Kafka, Nabakov, Calvino and Garca Mrquez, The New Life documents the spiritual journey of a young student, who leaves his family behind in the name of love, life and literature.

From bestselling author, Rachael Herron, comes another funny and sexy romcom set in the sleepy California town of Cypress Hollow. Cora has been hurt too many times, and by one man in particular . . .

So everything is planned out to the last detail – from how to run her farm on a shoestring, to how to survive a major earthquake. Unfortunately there's nothing in those notes to cover the return of the infuriatingly handsome Mac Wildwood, her husband's cousin, the man she loved and lost. And Mac, it seems, has a shattering plan of his own up his sleeve. Cora Sylvan safeguarded everything – but she didn't protect her heart . . .
