This book was a simple comforting story about small town life. Very interesting subject matter for crafty folk.

To tell the truth, I only got 1/4 of the way through. Boring....!

This light novel is set in the Illinois town of Avalon. There are many characters here, but the core group includes Bettie, the founder of the Society and an avid scrapbook pusher; Isabel, still mourning her husband Bill, who left her for a younger woman and then died in an accident; Ava, the younger woman Bill loved and had a child, Max, with, struggling to make a living; Yvonne, a female plumber who has left her controlling family, but still mourns her severed relationship with longtime love Sam; Frances, who loves her three sons and husband Reed, but still longs for a daughter through a Chinese adoption; and Connie, whose early losses affect her ability to commit to relationships.
With the scrapbooking loosely connecting all these characters and more, there are many stories here, of love, of loss, of community. An upbeat novel.
