Knotty but nice, really nice
A TANGLE OF KNOTS by Lisa Graff. Philomel, 2013.
It is a world where people have TALENTS. Some might have a talent for baking, some for knitting, some for writing. But when you are still searching for your own talent, life can be tough. The story is revealed in a series of episodes that introduce the seemingly random group of characters, but while their relationships might seem tangled at first, there are ties that bind them all together, knots that will keep them together despite efforts to tear them apart. Graff has constructed a wonderful puzzle of a novel that will keep readers turning page after page to discover the next twist of the tale. Humor, magic, and wonderful recipes await between the covers.
