Description

Does Jane Sandburg's future lie between the pages of her scrapbook?

With the help of her scrapbooking girlfriends, Jane is putting the pieces of her life back together since her divorce from a cheating husband. Her non-profit publicity firm is doing well and her new neighbor, Jake, is causing all kinds of sparks.

But when the Ex returns with a sorrowful heart begging for one more chance, Jane pulls her wedding scrapbook out of the closet to decide if her future lies in the past. With her friends going through trials of their own--adoption, run-ins with the law, and marital trouble--Jane and the girls come together over the scrapping table to make sense of their crazy lives.

Through the diverse and connected lives of four women, Rebeca Seitz creates an engaging story that celebrates the power of friendship and the uncertain-but-exciting world of starting anew.

Reading Group Guide

  1. On her wedding day, Jane's best friend, Lydia, tries to talk her out of marrying Bill because she believes he is a cheater. Was Lydia right in speaking so forcefully--or do you think she should have kept quiet? What would you have done in that situation? 
  2. When Jane discovers her husband's on-line affair, she leaves him immediately. If she had stayed in the marriage and insisted on their seeing a counselor, would that have saved the marriage? Why or why not? 
  3. Lydia also has marital problems. What are they? What do you think of Lydia's attempt to solve one of their problems through sexy lingerie and cutting off the cable TV? What should she do to improve their relationship? 
  4. Jane and her scrapbooking friends discuss the importance of learning and speaking a person's "love language." Which of the five love languages did Jane use to communicate her feelings for Jake? What is your preferred love language? What is your significant other's? 
  5. When Jane's ex-husband begs her to come back to him, she has to choose between a man who offers a marriage based on friendship and one based on romantic love. Which is more important when choosing a mate? Why? Can a good marriage be built on either alone? 
  6. With which of the characters do you most identify? Why? 
  7. Jane considers throwing away her wedding scrapbook, but instead decides to add some new photos and a poem. What does this signify about Jane's ability to deal with her past rather than bury it?  
  8. A major theme of Prints Charming is the friendship of women. What do Jane and her Sisters, Ink. friends offer one another that they don't find anywhere else in their lives? What ideas did this book elicit in you about the possibilities of a similar group?
