A poignant and heartwarming story about a group of women who form deep friendships through their love of scrapbooking - as memories are preserved, dreams are shared, and surprising truths are revealed. A novel about heart, about family and finding ourselves in places where we least expect from the bestselling author of Friendship Bread.
At Madeline's Tea Salon, the cozy hub of the Avalon community, six women find their memories are shaping their future.
Young Connie Colls, fiercely independent and full of promise longs for a past she never had. Isabel Kidd is anxious to move forward but is still paralysed by the consequences of her late husband's love affair. After spending many years living a life on her own terms, Yvonne Tate finds that she can't outwit her past. For Ava Catalina, reaching out to hold on to precious memories means rekindling old hurts while Frances Latham sees her dream for a daughter dashed when tragedy strikes. And then there's irascible Bettie Shelton, founder and president of the Avalon Scrapbooking Society, who helps others create lasting memories of their past but finds the pages of her own albums empty. As the women gather to scrapbook the details of their lives, they discover that things are not always as they seem.
By turns humorous, wise, and deeply moving, The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society is a luminous reminder that the things we hold most dear will last a lifetime.
