    A middle-aged woman, who likes to entertain, had recently lost her spouse and thought that her life was worthless and she was useless. She had been putting mementos and photos in a scrapbox and album and reminiscing, when she had the idea to throw a party asking each guest to bring something old and nostalgic - a hankie, piece of jewelry, small tool, souvenir, button, playbill, or other small item. The idea was that each guest would have to tell the story behind the item.

They illustrate what is expected of the other person in a relationship - things that people who are seeking lasting relationships seem to have forgotten. It could be considered a how-to book, in a humorous way.
