b'The Unlikely Yarn of the Dragon LadyA NovelSharon J. MondragnA knitting groups change of scenery changes lives in unexpected waysM argaret, Rose, Jane, and Fran had a good thing going: meet every week in the quiet of their peaceful chapel and knit prayer shawls. No muss, just ministry. That is, until their pastor boots them out of the church in his last-ditch effort to revive the dwindling congregation.Uptight Margaret isnt having it. Knitting prayer shawls where people can watch is the most ridiculous idea shes ever heard of, and shes heard plenty. Prayer belongs in the church, not out among the heathen masses. How are they supposed to knit holiness into these shawls if theyre constantly distracted by the public? But with no choice, the others embrace the challenge. They pack their knitting bags and drag Margaretgrumbling the whole wayto the mall with them. She cant wait to prove them all wrong when it fails miserably, and show the pastor that she always knows best.Without the familiar mold the group has been stuck in, their own losses, pain, and struggles rise to the surface. And the people and situations they encounter every time they try to sit quietly and knit are taking them a lot further out of their comfort zone than they ever imagined. Can they find the courage to tackle the increasing number of knotty issues they learn about in the com-munityor will the tangle be too much to unravel?Sharon J.
