The Knitting Circle by Ann Hood

Mary's five-year-old daughter suddenly dies from meningitis. To survive her loss and her grief, Mary learns to knit. She joins a knitting circle with women who, on the surface, seem to have it all together, but underneath they are also dealing with losses of their own.

This book captured grief well. I liked it. So much that I even brought it with me to work because I only had 30 pages left. But I didn't get a chance to finish it and after I left the office at 8pm, I kicked myself for having left it in my cubby hole. I thought about going back to get it, but thought it was safer that I didn't. But only that safety factor kept me from running back through the parking lot and up the stairs to retrieve it.
