There, Flora and Ruby become friends with Olivia, who likes to organize things, and Nikki, who lives on the wrong side of the tracks. Even if Flora and Ruby never expected it to, Camden Falls becomes their home…and its stories become a part of their stories.

But the friendship that ties them together will also give them the strength to work things out -- one stitch at a time.
