My new book, Crochet Saved My Life, has been honored with quite a few reviews around the web. I’m proud of this, not just because it is nice validation as a writer but moreso because the reviews consistently say that the book has touched people and is something that they can relate to. I believe that writing can serve to truly connect people and am happy that this book seems to be doing this. Over the next few weeks I’ll share snippets of some of those reviews with you.
I’ll start today with a bit of the review from CrochetKitten. She starts off by doing a great job of explaining how the book kicks off when she says, “In Crochet Saved My Life, author Kathryn Vercillo bravely accounts her decent through depression and how she managed to climb back out of it, crochet hook in hand.”
She goes on to say:
“Kathryn Vercillo gives many accounts in Crochet Saved My Life of how crochet has helped others, from empowering a woman who was a victim of rape, to helping a woman who suffers from hallucinations keep her grip on reality, to comforting a woman who is going blind. This book is a must-read for any crocheter who has ever felt alone or like no one else understands. If you only have time to read one book this year, make it this one.”
That last line bears repeating: “If you only have time to read one book this year, make it this one.” What amazing praise!
Selena of CrochetKitten shares a lot in her review about her own experience of using crochet to heal, first in dealing with difficulties as a tween and then later also as an adult. Check out her review to read all about that!
I included this quote from CrochetKitten in a roundup of praise for Crochet Saved My Life that I did over on my personal blog, Diary of a Smart Chick.
