Caroline Preston is the author of three previous novels, Jackie by Josie (a New York Times Notable Book), Lucy Crocker 2.0, and Gatsby's Girl, and one scrapbook novel, The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt. She has collected antique scrapbooks since she was in high school, and has worked as an archivist at the Peabody/ Essex Museum and Harvard University. She and her husband, the writer Christopher Tilghman, live in Charlottesville, Virginia.
"In her sophomore scrapbook presentation, Preston displays the left-behind experiences of a 1940s war bride and the result is even more spectacular...The inclusion of three post-scrapbook entries at book's end is especially resonating. ..an exceptional reading experience." -- Booklist (starred review)
