About the Author:
Since the age of three, Jaime Marsman has long been fascinated with the simple shifting of letters to create different words, thoughts, and sentences.
As a knitwear designer for Live.Knit.Love, she has found the same thing to also be true of yarn. Perhaps that would explain the joy she feels every time she picks up her pen or her needles. Inspiring others with her work is one of Jaime's fondest goals and dreams. She wants people to realize the joy of creating and following their dreams in their own special ways.
Jaime is so grateful to God for His love and guiding hand in her life. She prays that everyone comes to have the joy and peace of knowing Him.
The Knitting Fairy is a very sweet book written about Molly Stevenson. She is a twenty something employed as an assistant librarian, who lives in Spring-gate. The book starts out innocent enough but soon things start changing all around her. The way she talks about the "Mother Goose" type old lady that comes to return a book that is over forty years old has you wondering right away where this is headed. Molly doesn't want to charge the little old lady such an astronomical amount for this very old book. But Molly's boss, head librarian Mrs. Goldmyer, sees it a different way and fires Molly.
As Molly is trying to figure out what to do next, she is greeted by Mother Goose offers her a job at her store Crab Apple Yarns. Which Molly is unsure about because she knows nothing about any type of yarn crafting. But she needs the job. Soon things start happening that can't be explained. And Molly finds herself in the middle of a real life mystery.
My favorite character was Molly, she reminds me alot of myself. She is a girly girl type character that would be easy to get along with. The author has written a very fun, whimsical book that can be enjoyed by knitters or by people that have never even picked knitting needles up.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from ShadeTree Publishing.
