The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society: A Novel | [Darien Gee]

The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society: A Novel

At Madeline's Tea Salon, the cozy hub of the Avalon community, local residents scrapbook their memories and make new ones. But across town, other Avalonians are struggling to free themselves of the past: Isabel Kidd is fixing up her ramshackle house while sorting through the complications of her late husband's affair. Ava Catalina is mourning the love of her life and helping her young son grow up without his father. And Frances Latham eagerly anticipates the arrival of a little girl from China - unprepared for the emotional roller coaster of foreign adoption.

Publisher's Summary

At Madeline's Tea Salon, the cozy hub of the Avalon community, local residents scrapbook their memories and make new ones. But across town, other Avalonians are struggling to free themselves of the past: Isabel Kidd is fixing up her ramshackle house while sorting through the complications of her late husband's affair. Ava Catalina is mourning the love of her life and helping her young son grow up without his father. Local plumber Yvonne Tate is smart, beautiful, and new to Avalon, but finds that despite a decade of living life on her own terms, the past has a way of catching up - no matter where she goes. And Frances Latham, mother to a boisterous brood of boys, eagerly anticipates the arrival of a little girl from China - unprepared for the emotional roller coaster of foreign adoption.

Enter Bettie Shelton, the irascible founder of the Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society. Under Bettie's guidance, even the most reluctant of Avalon's residents come to terms with their past and make bold decisions about their future. But when the group receives unexpected news about their steadfast leader, they must pull together to create something truly memorable. 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.

    Story
    "You will want to scrapbook if you don't already"

    Cute story about women in a scrapbooking club. There are some good relationships as we are introduced to the different characters and see how their lives become enmeshed. I think I am sufficiently motivated now to get my five scrapbooks started and completed. My gathering and sorting is done, but time to compile and give as gifts to my loved ones.

    I listen to audiobooks while I sew, quilt, knit, make greeting cards, make mini scrapbook journals, work in the kitchen and iron clothes.

    Story
    "Not the author or narrator for me ...."
    What disappointed you about The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society?

    The narrator was horrible. She made her characters sound old and crotchety. It was hard to finish this audio book. The plot was predictable and sophomoric.


    What could Darien Gee have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I am not sure.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    I do not like giving negative feedback; however this book was not worth the money.
