5 STARS Review to come Susan Wiggs and her books have long been favorites of mine in the past After not reading one for awhile, I decided to jump back into with this one and while it wasn t exactly what I thought it would be, it was still a delightful mostly read for me Mostly because the subject matter includes domestic violence and that could be a trigger for some Just a heads up.
Carolyn left Oysterville ten years previously to study fashion to fulfill her lifelong dream of working in the world of high fashion as a designer She succeeds in many ways until it s all ripped away from her Tragedy follows on the heels of that and she finds herself taking two small children not hers back to Oysterville with her Recovery for both her and her young charges is much needed and her family home is just the thing for them Of course, her longtime friend crush Will, now married to her high s I have read most of Susan Wiggs books and her new book is definitely my favorite It s got everything you need for a great novel well written characters, a fantastic plot and a beautiful setting There s some romance, lots of family love along with learning to overcome defeat It s also about domestic violence that occurs in every level of society and is often hidden from other people.
As Caroline returns to Oysterville after 10 years in New York City, she s a different person than the girl who couldn t wait to get out of the small town and live in the big city She left with big dreams of being a fashion designer but has come home in defeat She s also different because she has two young children under her care She never wanted children growing up and is not sure of how to parent the two children whose mother died in her apartment in New Y I got an Advance Reader Edition at ALA Midwinter and it was fun to meet the author there, too Caroline returns to her hometown of Oysterville, Washington because she has no other choice While her design career in New York ended in disaster, the real tragedy was the death of her dear friend, Angelique, from an accidental drug overdose Angelique worked as a model and named Caroline the legal guardian of her two children, Flip and Addie Being a parent is often overwhelming for Caroline, but with the support of her family and friends she starts over with her design work and begins to create a loving and safe home for the children She also reconnects with her childhood best friends Will and Sierra As Caroline starts to turn life around for herself and her children issues from her past threaten everything.
The Oysterville Sewing Circle is the name of the support group Caroline, he I just finished reading the galley of this beautiful story and I know other readers are going to love it as much as I do It is the heartbreaking story of abuse and the powerful healing that can happen when women pull together.
Caroline never thought she would be returning to her childhood home of Oysterville and definitely not with two children that weren t her own.
Caroline had wanted to leave as badly as any young person and head to New York City Caroline did make it big in New York until a famous designer stole her clothing line.
Her loss and the death of her friend had Caroline returning with her friend s two children because Caroline had no idea how to take care of a child let alone two.
Caroline had a loving, supportive family to help her and ideas on how to help women of domestic abuse since that is what took her friend who left her the two children.
We get a glimpse into Caroline s life as a teenager as well as her life now Her teenage years were just as full of love as her adult life with I thoroughly enjoyed The Oysterville Sewing Circle Believe me when I say, it is not what it appears at first glance, and that is by design It handles some pretty heavy topics, primarily domestic abuse, in a way that is easy to take in and not feel overwhelmed by the message This is a story for women, about women and about love, and not just following our passions, but finding them as well It illustrates how our lives are our own, even when they are not This was a great read
