Elise didn’t want to be in the town at all–and certainly not in the scrapbooking shop…
A month after Elise Shelton and her family arrive in Forest Falls, Oregon, she wanders into Rebekah Graham’s scrapbooking store. Elise deems Rebekah too perky and judges scrapbooking to be another never-gets-done chore, but she’s also drawn to the community of women who gather to crop their photos, lay out pages, and share their lives.
The women rally around Elise when her husband is called back into the army and her family is thrown into turmoil. When Rebekah’s daughter faces a medical crisis, challenging Rebekah’s desire to control her life as tightly as she plans her scrapbook pages, the women must support each other.
As both women battle to overcome their fears and to grow in faith, they discover unexpected gifts–and an unlikely friendship that will change their lives.
Leslie Gould lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, Peter, and four children. Her previous novels include Garden of Dreams and Beyond the Blue. Leslie enjoys watching her daughters and friends scrapbook, and she sometimes joins them.
