The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs

Georgia leads a busy life, raising her teenage daughter on her own and running Walker and Daughter, her knitting store in New York. The Friday Night Knitting Club is born when Georgia's regular customers start chatting and lingering past closing time. We meet Anita, Georgia's seventysomething confidiante who is contemplating having a relationship with Georgia's landlord, Marty. There's also, Cat, Georgia's childhood friend who betrayed her years ago. Of course, we're introduced to the rest of the club--K.C., Darwin, Lucie, and Peri. All the women are working through life's changes with one another's support and friendship. While Georgia remains at the book's core, the perspective occasionally shifts from character to character--a nice touch. The Friday Night Knitting Club is similar to The Memoir Club by Laura Kalpakian and Jo-Ann Mapson's Bad Girl Creek trilogy.
