The #1 New York Times bestselling author brings us her most ambitious and provocative work yet—a searing and timely novel that explores the sustaining power of women’s friendships
Caroline Shelby thought she’d left forever Oysterville, Washington, forever. Ten years ago, Caroline launched a career in the glamorous world of fashion. But her success imploded on a wave of scandal, forcing her to flee to the only safe place she knows. And in the backseat of Caroline’s car are two children who were orphaned in a single chilling moment—five-year-old Addie and six-year-old Flick. She’s now their legal guardian—a role she’s not sure she’s ready for.
The Oysterville she left behind has changed. Her siblings have their own complicated lives and her aging parents are hoping to retire. And there’s Will Jensen, a decorated Navy SEAL who’s also returned home after being wounded overseas. Will and Caroline were forever friends as children, with the promise of something more...until he fell in love with Sierra, Caroline’s best friend.
Caroline returns to the sewing shop where she first discovered her passion, and discovers that even in an idyllic beach town, there are women living with the deepest of secrets. Thus begins the Oysterville Sewing Circle—where women can join forces to support one another through the troubles they keep hidden.
