Publisher's Summary

To discover the sweetest things in life, you sometimes have to lose your way…It’s easy to fall in love with the beautiful town of Redstone – the locals wave and chat to each other, the shops and cafes are full of cheerful hustle and bustle. And amidst all this activity, two women believe they are getting on just fine. Francesca’s boundless energy helps her to take everything in her stride, including a husband who has lost his job and the unwelcome arrival of the menopause, which has kicked in – full throttle.

Peggy has always been a restless spirit. But now, focused and approaching thirty, she has opened her own knitting shop on the town’s high street. It’s a dream come true, but she still feels adrift. When Australian-raised Lillie finally makes it back home to Ireland, she is drawn right into the heart of Redstone’s thriving community. But what she thought would be an ending is actually just a beginning; all of Lillie’s hard-earned wisdom will soon be called into play as she helps new friends navigate unchartered territory….

    Story
    "The worst Australian accent ever"
    Would you try another book from Cathy Kelly and/or Amy Creighton?

    I always enjoy a Cathy Kelly novel. Reliably enjoyable and the story always finishes happily ever after.


    Any additional comments?

    I nearly stopped listening about 2 hours in , the Australian accent was so so bad. Something crossed between Cornish and I don't know what bla!

    Story
    "Gentle but quite slow moving"
    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No - I am almost blind so I can't see.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a nice story but a bit slow moving for my liking.

    Story
    "Perfect Holiday Reading"

    I love Cathy Kelly`s books and Amy Creighton is a fabulous narrator who get the accents and intonation so right.
    This is a sensitive plot and I enjoyed its poignancy a soft gentle story with sensitive issues so skilfully written
