Haven Point

Excerpt from book:

Devin Shaw was bored.

She supposed that particular state of affairs wasn't necessarily a bad thing in her current role as substitute attending physician at the Lake Haven Hospital emergency department. While a juicy trauma might be professionally stimulating and serve to break up the monotony, she adored all her neighbors in Haven Point and the greater Lake Haven area too much to wish that sort of stress and pain on anyone.

Better to be stuck at the nurses' station of the small emergency department trying without success—and not for the first time, alas—to learn how to knit.

"No. Your problem here has to do with the amount of tension on the working yarn," Greta Ward insisted. "If you don't have the right tension, you'll end up losing control and making a huge mess you will only have to undo."

The scarily efficient charge nurse of the emergency department at the Lake Haven Hospital leaned over her and tugged the yarn around her fingers in some kind of complicated way that Devin knew she would never be able to replicate.

"There. That's better. Try again."

Devin concentrated, nibbling on her bottom lip as she tried to work the needles that seemed unwieldy and awkward, no matter how she tried.

After her third time tangling the yarn into a total mess, Devin sighed and admitted defeat. Again. Every time they happened to be assigned to work together, Greta took a moment to try teaching her to knit. And every time, she came up short.

"People who find knitting at all relaxing have to be crazy. I think I must have some kind of mental block. It's just not coming."

"You're not trying hard enough," Greta insisted.

"I am! I swear I am."

"Even my eight-year-old granddaughter can do it," she said sternly. "Once you get past the initial learning curve, this is something you'll love the rest of your life."

"I think it's funny." Callie Bennett, one of the other nurses and also one of Devin's good friends, smirked as she observed her pitiful attempts over the top of her magazine.

"Oh, yes. Hilarious," Devin said drily.

"It is! You're a physician who can set a fractured radius, suture a screaming six-year-old's finger and deliver a baby, all with your eyes closed."

"Not quite," Devin assured her. "I open my eyes at the end of childbirth so I can see to cut the umbilical cord."

Callie chuckled. "Seriously, you're one of the best doctors at this hospital. I love working with you and wish you worked here permanently. You're cool under pressure and always seem to know just how to deal with every situation. But I hate to break it to you, hon, you're all thumbs when it comes to knitting, no matter how hard you try."

"I'm going to get the hang of this tonight," she insisted. "If Greta's eight-year-old granddaughter can do it, so can I."

She picked up the needles again and concentrated under the watchful eye of the charge nurse until she'd successfully finished the first row of what she hoped would eventually be a scarf.

"Not bad," Greta said. "Now just do that about four hundred more times and you might have enough for a decent-sized scarf."

Devin groaned. Already, she was wishing she had stuck to reading the latest medical journals to pass the time instead of trying to knit yet again.

"I've got to go back to my office and finish the schedule for next month," Greta said. "Keep going and remember—ten rows a day keeps the psychiatrist away."

Devin laughed but didn't look up from the stitches.

"How do you always pick the slowest nights to fil"Thayne's latest in the Hope's Crossing series is a story of love, forgiveness and healing. Once again, Thayne proves she has a knack for capturing those emotions that come from the heart. With great tenderness, she tells Spencer and Charlotte's story, bringing readers back to the quaint town of Hope's Crossing and its unique, charming residents. Crisp storytelling and many amusing moments make for a delightful read." -RT Book Reviews on Willowleaf Lane
