From the backwaters of Tasmania to the sophisticated streets of Sydney, sisters Bellarene and Serandipity have come a long way. As international flight attendants the world is their oyster – until Sera fell in love and settled for family life.
Obsessed with keeping up appearances, Sera goes to extreme lengths to maintain the illusion of perfection, while Bella just wants to fly away from the responsibility of mothering her little sister, from the sadness of her broken marriage, and from memories of the past.
Gathering her friends at Stitch ‘n’ Bitch is like therapy. There’s a lot of talk, and not much knitting – and they wouldn’t have it any other way. Ditzy Mallory has her own shocks in store, and single mum Chantrea agonises over work and childcare. Widowed single dad, Sam, is terrified of the dating scene, and Sera’s uptight neighbour, Jacquline, has a little secret, one that could destroy her neatly ordered world. Meanwhile Joan, Sera’s mother-in-law, watches then all and sniffs with disdain at their trivial worries.
Sera wants to be perfect. Bella just wants to be free. Will the sisters get what they want?
