The Honey Queen Synopsis

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 help 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, on the other hand, 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 busy, close-knit community. But what she thought would be an ending is actually just a beginning - all is not quite as it seems in the picturesque town. Soon, Lillie's hard-earned wisdom will be called into play as she helps new friends navigate unchartered territory...
