One woman has an amazing gift, another desperately needs one and the man in the middle is indifferent.

See synopsis and book details below.

“This odd little novel bounces between an affluent British Columbia town and a poverty-stalked village in Chile… Ayala  flirts with magical realism here, takes a couple of swipes at New Age Paganism, and frowns severely at first-world consumerism… As a knitter, I was particularly enchanted by the descriptions of the sweaters and by Irene’s use of them to create a barrier between herself and her grief.” – LibraryThing review

……………………..

“Recommended for those who enjoy something more offbeat, who are not afraid of the unlikeability of main characters, or those who want to learn more about what happens to clothes you drop off in those ‘donate your old wardrobe for our future!’ bins.” – LibraryThing review

Irene is content in her new marriage of convenience and her young life is going according to plan. Her husband plays the stock market, they own a convenience store and they live in an upscale neighborhood of a small town.

But when a sudden deep tragedy strikes, Irene is unable to cope… that is, until she rediscovers knitting. In her search for solace, she compulsively fills the rooms of their house with more and more beautiful little sweaters. Finally, her husband decides to donate them to an international charity and one of the sweaters is stolen by a poverty-stricken single mother on the other side of the world who is wrestling with her own issues.

As the two women struggle to get by, their distinct coping methods take bizarre twists. Sprinkled with magic realism and humor, the story brings to light social inequities and global environmental damage. But it’s really about overcoming loss and our shared humanity.
