Summary, etc.:
At the break of dawn, Caroline Shelby returns home to Oysterville, Washington, a tiny coastal hamlet, a place she thought she'd left forever. With her are two orphaned children for whom she is now legal guardian, a role she's not sure she's ready for. But the town has changed. For solace, Caroline returns to her favorite place: the sewing shop owned by Mrs. Lindy Bloom, where she discovers that even here are women living with the deepest of secrets. Thus begins the Oysterville Sewing Circle, where women can join forces to support each other through the troubles they keep hidden.

    Wiggs's latest is an uplifting novel of sisterhood, redemption, and recovery after trauma. Caroline, an aspiring designer in New York City, suddenly becomes guardian to her deceased friend Angelique's two young children. On returning to her hometown in the Pacific Northwest, she works to recover professionally and begin a support group for those touched by domestic violence, as Angelique was. As the women's individual and collective strength grows, they reverse wrongs in life, love, and work, none more than Caroline. Hvam, prolific narrator and voice-over actor, gives a warm, sympathetic performance. She portrays an emotional arc, including Caroline's devastation at Angelique's death, her fear and uncertainty as a new parent to grieving children, and anger towards her chief antagonist. The children oscillate between distress and ebullience, Caroline's childhood friend Will is weary but empathetic, and the women of the Sewing Circle progress from sadness and timidity into strength and industry. Listeners inspired by romantic and empowering stories will be moved. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
