The connections women make through scrapbooking inspire a novel full of ?the twists and turns that keep readers turning pages.?

When frazzled mother of four Ashley joins a local scrapbook club, she?s amazed at the way old photos and mementos can bring color to sepiatoned memories. Among the diverse group is Tara, a single grad student whose search for love, like her relationship with her absentee father, has only brought her heartache?and some funny dating stories. Then there?s Libby, a semi-retired teacher who thought she?d spend her golden years taking classes?not as a town pariah after her son is charged in a corporate scandal. But all three find comfort and inspiration in the scrapbooking group, where they learn that only together can they face earth-shattering revelations and emotionally unavailable men?and figure out their futures while artfully commemorating their pasts.
