The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society
February 25, 2013 - Amy Phelps
A group of women all going through uproar in their lives surrounds the story of a small town in Illinois in "The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society" by Darien Gee.
Madeline's Tea Salon is the hub of Avalon and the ladies that live there. But while scrapbooking may be the calm in their storm, all of the ladies are suffering turmoil.
There's Isabel, who is struggling after discovering about her late husband's affair and trying to fix up her house. Ava is trying to cope with being a single parent after her husband's death. Yvonne has come to town to escape her past and start over anew. And Frances is getting ready to adopt a little girl from China.
As the women all must cope with their own struggles, they soon come together to help each other in their time of need, especially after they find that the leader of their scrapbooking group, Bettie, has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
A love letter to women's strength and friendship, this is a book that will lift your spirits.
"The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society" is published by Ballantine. It is $26 and 426 pages long.
