Like many of their wishes, it's come true, and now they knit every day. But Ellen has quietly added a twenty-first wish: that her mom will fall in love with Tim, Ellen's birth father, who has recently entered their lives… Knitting is a passion Coming Unraveled by Susan Mallery When Robyn Mulligan's dreams of becoming a Broadway star give way to an intense longing for her childhood home, she decides it's time to make a fresh start back in Texas, running her grandmother's knitting store.
