about this item

Based on a true story, a real scrapbook from World War II and real people.Bet and Ray met, fell in love, and got engaged until they were separated by a war.The Old Scrapbook is real, Ray Speck (my blood relative) and Betty Campioni were real as well. This story is an attempt to fill in the blanks of their real relationship.My mother received the scrapbook from her uncle (Ray’s real brother). I found it when my mom died. I had never laid eyes on it before that time. The only thing I did know about Ray was he was my mom’s uncle who died in the war. I was able to uncover much information about Bet and Ray. I went from zero to ninety doing extensive research to find them and Bet’s family. Like Kenny in my story, I became a little obsessed with the scrapbook and what could have become of the young woman who created it. I felt from the beginning that I was led to that war-time scrapbook by an unseeing hand. I could feel something from its pages. I felt Bet’s loving nature and fun personality transcended the years, coming out of the words and pictures from those black pages. It made this the most unique book I had ever had the pleasure to write. Seventy years later, the old scrapbook was found and the mysteries involved, rediscovered.
