At the break of dawn, Caroline Shelby rolls into Oysterville, Washington, a tiny hamlet at the edge of the raging Pacific. She’s come home to a place she thought she’d left forever. Ten years ago, Caroline launched a career in the glamorous fashion world of Manhattan. But her success in New York imploded on a wave of scandal and tragedy, forcing her to flee to the only safe place she knows. And in the backseat of her car are two children who were orphaned in a single chilling moment. Caroline is now the legal guardian of five-year-old Addie and six-year-old Flick—a role she’s not sure she’s ready for.

But the Oysterville she left behind has changed. So, Caroline turns to the place she feels most at home; the sewing shop owned by a woman who inspired her and taught her to sew. There she discovers that even in an idyllic beach town, there are women living with the deepest of secrets. Inspired by this knowledge, and still grieving for the friend she lost, Caroline launches the Oysterville Sewing Circle—a weekly all-female group where women can talk about their lives without judgment and help each other through the troubles they keep hidden from the rest of the world. As word of the Sewing Circle spreads, Caroline regains her creativity and fighting spirit, but an unexpected challenge tests her courage and her heart.

The Oysterville Sewing Circle is an emotionally charged story that tugs at the heartstrings in the best possible way; with an irresistible ensemble cast and deeply felt truths about coming home, women’s friendships, and finding your way in the world.
