Synopsis

The Honey Queen by Cathy Kelly

Can she find the strength to help the family she never knew she had? Vibrant and warm, Frankie manages people as a career - so her husband's silence on redundancy comes as a shock. Suddenly both their dream house project in pretty Redstone and their marriage are under terrible strain. Only twenty-seven, Peggy is opening her own knitting shop in town but her past threatens to unravel any prospect of love and a family of her own. Lillie is the friend they both need. Newly arrived in the small Irish town from Australia, she's no stranger to secrets and heartache. Wrapped in the warmth of the community, Lillie must help herself and her new friends rediscover the joy in life...
