SheKnows' Spring must-read!

When love shows up in unexpected places, it can change your life forever. In How to Knit a Heart Back Home, two people who never expected to fall in love find themselves unable to escape their hearts' desire.

How to Knit a Heart Back Home

Lucy Harrison is a small town girl who runs her grandmother's bookstore during the day and works as a volunteer firefighter at night. Her life is simple and fulfilling, but when her high school crush returns home, her world is flipped upside down.

Owen Bancroft has been forced into early retirement after a gunshot wound cut his time in the police force short. Caring for his ill mother and dealing with the disappointment of his stunted career, Owen was in no position to fall in love, but he couldn't avoid what he felt for Lucy.

When the discovery of an archive of knitting legend Eliza Carpenter's work throws them together, Owen struggles to redefine himself while Lucy tries to hold on to her identity despite the love she feels.

The story weaves love, friendship and family together in a way that will charm and delight you. The incorporation of knitting adds a fun twist to the love story and speaks to the heart of the author. Rachael Herron has an MFA in writing, runs a popular website, Yarnagogo, and has been knitting since she was five.
