Gil McNeil lives in Kent, England, with her son, and comes from a long line of champion knitters. (Author's name is pronounced "Jill.")
Knit one . . . Its been a busy few years since Jo Mackenzie lost her husband. Life has brought adventure, surprises, unexpected pleasures, and, of course, lots of knitting. Jos seaside yarn shop, with a brand new cafE, has taken off, keeping her busier than ever. And being a single mum to two boys and headstrong toddler Pearl is just as exhausting and enchanting as she thought it would be. On top of all that, celebrity diva Grace has a secret; Jos firecracker best friend Ellen is launching a new television series; and lovable but hapless Martin continues his oft misguided attempts to woo Jo. Just when Jo thinks she has about all she can handle, Daniel, Pearls globe-trotting dad, turns up out of the blue . . .
Purl one . . . But with a little help from her friends, and her beloved Gran, Jo is building a new life for herself by the sea, stitch by stitch. Warm and witty, Knit One Pearl One
will delight new readers to the Beach Street
series and give the legions of existing fans a chance to visit the British seaside again, without having to worry about the weather.
Praise for Gil McNeil and the Beach Street Knitting Society
Warm and wonderful.
A warmly winning second-chance novel . . . Smartly written, Beach Street
is also very, very funny.
