Endorsements

“You’ll fall in love with the ladies of Sweetgum! Beth Pattillo knits an engaging novel where so many lives are woven together seamlessly.” — Leanna Ellis, award winning author of Ruby’s Slippers

“I love the ladies of the Sweetgum Knit Lit Society! Beth Pattillo has created characters so real I want to join their group and a setting so charming I want to visit on my next vacation. Thankfully, I can get away and do that without leaving my cozy reading corner just by opening the pages of The Sweetgum Ladies Knit For Love. Warm and sweetly southern, Pattillo delivers everything you want in a story and then some.” — Annie Jones, award-winning southern author

“Jan Karon meets Jodi Piccoult. The Sweetgum Knit Lit Society is an intriguing look into the minds and hearts of a diverse group of women. This is a compelling and heartwarming story full of love and grace you don’t want to miss!” — Julie L. Cannon, author of The Romance Readers' Book Club

“Like Debbie Macomber, Beth Pattillo spins warm, compelling stories out of the lives of everyday people. Five women and a girl gather regularly at the Sweetgum Christian Church to knit, read, and talk, and in the process they confront their own secrets, dreams and challenges. I hope this is the first of a series so I can revisit the Knit Lit Society again and again!” — Mary Jo Putney, author of A Distant Magic

“Thank you, Beth Pattillo, for ‘casting on’ characters who so vividly reveal our human failing to render and receive love, which, as you so artfully depict, we too often withhold, delay, rush, misdirect, or hide from. But thank you most of all for showing us how the smallest of tentative steps we take toward each other can help us to find our true selves, and therefore lead us closer to God’s perfect love.” — Charlene Ann Baumbich, speaker, humorist, author of the Welcome to Partonville series

“I could almost hear the clack of knitting needles as I read through the pages of The Sweetgum Knit Lit Society. Beth Pattillo’s motley group of true-to-life characters deal with life’s struggles and share a camaraderie that few take the time to discover in this heartwarming yarn of true friendship. A must read!” — Diann Hunt, author of For Better or For Worse

    This was not the typical book I would have chosen. It took a while to get into the story and it seemed a bit drawn out. It was an easy read.

    Knit Lit, not Christian Knit Lit, faith and daily struggles of the Christian lady today are not discussed. This is a book about women who meet together to knit and discuss books. There is no bad language, and it is an enjoyable, quick read. The characters do not discuss their faith, we have to assume they are belivers. The only "Christian", church lady is a meanspirited, manipulative, busybody, who seems to take joy in making others do as she pleases, by whatever means possible. The pastor's new wife refuses to discuss her belief or faith because she and her husband feel it isn't anyone else's business, which leads me to question why bother to attend their church. The ladies in the group all atttend this church, but it appears to be more of a social activity, not a faithbased activity.

    It takes a special gift to be able to bring a group of 6 special gals to my attention and then have them equally share in the storyline without any one of them stealing the spotlight. I think ensemble books are incredibly hard to write, generally one character takes the lead while showing or telling what is happening in the lives of the others. Beth Patillo has a true talent for ensemble writing. "Sweetgum Ladies Knit For Love" is book #2 in the Sweetgum Ladies series and while I really enjoyed the first book, this second book was a sheer delight to me. The way she balanced telling about the lives of these 6 ladies who were connected once a month by their book club and knitting group and yet by so much more was amazing to me.Eugenie, the librarian who has finally found her first love again. Esther, who has just lost her first love. Merry, the young wife and mother who only thinks she knows that love is overwhelming. Hannah, the youngest of the group at 13 who has experienced more of life than some of the grown-ups already. Camille, who's life has been all about sacrifice and is now about solitude since the death of her ailing mother. And now the newest member of the group, Maria, who is trying to find where she fits in.These ladies quickly become old friends and I really wanted to see how everything would play out for them. The ending was beautiful and bittersweet, not everyone gets their lives wrapped up with a red bow (good for Beth!) and yet I was so satisfied at the end. You do not have to enjoy knitting to enjoy this book, a truly pleasureable read.

    "The Sweetgum Ladies Knit for Love" by Beth Pattillo is a warm and welcoming story! I almost felt as if Id been invited to join the group (though I certainly dont knit). The characters are honest and flawed, each with their own struggles and triumphs. Each of the ladies in this group is going through her own stuff and in many ways it seems an awful lot like real life complicated, messy, difficult, and heavy at times, but it doesnt stay that way. Following the stuff there are second chances at life and love, surprising twists, and even happy endings.

    "Knit for Love" was about a lit club group of woman who read classic romantic literature in which they saw lessons about their own romantic lives. Though they knitted projects to go with each lit club book, knitting had a very small role in this novel.This book is the second about these characters, but you don't need to read the first one to understand this one. It's a charming story with more depth than I expected from the fluffy-sounding back copy, but it was still very light & predictable. The characters were interesting and varied, and the details of small-town life were good. Their small, Southern town doesn't match mine in their expectations of other people, I could see this type of town existing.Though one of the characters was a pastor's wife and the rest attended the same church, there was no depth to their faith and little mention of God. Their church attendance came across to me as purely social or for appearance sake. Their faith makes no impact on how they behave.There was no bad language and no sex. Overall, it was well-written, clean reading.
