Devil's Darning Needle free pdf Linda Holeman's characters are instantly familiar. Or are they? In the nine stories which comprise "Devil's Darning Needle", we meet people - seemingly ordinary - struggling to go forward.

Meet Willow, who holds a mysterious and suffocating spell over a woman who innocently befriends her- the powerful Birdie, who, despite her lowly position, becomes a saviour- Seamus, carrying all his anguish and faith in a simple cookie tin.
