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 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…
