Suzanne's daughter, Campbell, journeys there in search of answers to her questions about her mother's history.Suzanne's three friends-Lila, Jane, and Meghan-were torn apart by long-buried secrets and heartbreak. Though they haven't spoken in years, each has pieces of a scrapbook they made together in Sweethaven. Suzanne's letters have lured them all back to the idyllic lakeside town, where they meet Campbell and begin to remember what was so special about their long Sweethaven summers. As the scrapbook reveals secrets one by one, old wounds are mended, lives are changed,

and friendships are restored-just as Suzanne intended.

I loved your book. I saw a review at Canadian Scrapbooker's Magazine. Every since then I have wanted to get it. It is a great story & being a scrapbooker it was even more interesting.
I have a group on woman I scrapbook regularly. We call ourselves "THE SISTERHOOD OF SCRAPBOOKING",Sista's for short. We all hooked up at local scrapbook store meeting at weekly crops. I even met up with a old high school pal & we have become great friends. We joke all the time about writing a book about ourselves. We have so much fun & have been there for each other in many situations. A bond from scrapbooking. We even have our own private page on facebook to keep in touch. We do other things besides scrapbooking, movie night, plays, dinner & crop weekends. So you can see how I relate to your book. Great job ! Tammy Richard
