“The Wishing Thread”

I am not familiar with books written by Lisa Van Allen, but her newest may be a winner on three fronts.  “The Wishing Thread” published by Ballantine Press involves magic, three sisters, and a knitting shop called The Stitchery.  The setting Tarrytown may also interest readers from this area.

Van Allen is not a Tarrytown native but loves that area so much that she knew she had found a perfect location for the book she was planning.  In order to get local color and the history just right she said she did a lot of reading and spent quite a lot of time in Tarrytown.  She has been to every major Halloween event and, of course, has toured Sunnyside.

For more about Van Allen see Tuesday, October 29’s “The Journal News.”
