I finished another wonderful novel and I just had to share with you. I read The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society by Darien Gee. I hadn’t even read anything by this author, but I love scrapbooking, so I decided to give it a try.
Darien does a wonderful job of fleshing out the characters in the small town of Avalon. The reader gets to experience life in Avalon through these characters’ lives. They are from a wide range of ages and backgrounds, but they are all tied together through one dynamic woman, Bettie. She heads up the Scrapbooking Society and shows others how to capture their memories in order to share with others.
You do not need to like scrapbooking or even know anything about it to enjoy this book. It is a wonderful story of the ups and downs of life in a small town and how much influence one woman can have. I would definitely recommend this book. It also includes recipes mentioned in the book as well as scrapbooking basics and tips for starting your own group. Pick up this book and get ready to be transformed into the town of Avalon.
