“Don't miss this compelling story of love, loss, and redemption! A real winner.” ~Haywood Smith, New York Times bestselling author of THE RED HAT CLUB and QUEEN BEE OF MIMOSA BRANCH
"With finely honed and evocative language, Laura Templeton tells the undeniably powerful story of a woman who must solve the mysteries of her past before she can find her present and future happiness. Set against a beautifully rendered Appalachia, SOMETHING YELLOW illuminates a journey of discovery that tests the bonds of human endurance and culminates in a triumph of the human spirit and human heart."

Excerpted from the November 2012 issue of Skirt! magazine.
My fascination with the mixing bowls started early. These particular bowls aren’t Italian glass or English porcelain or hand-crafted pottery. They’re just ordinary Pyrex. My grandmother gave them to my mother in the 1940s, soon after my parents married. The four party-colored bowls nest one inside the other: yellow, green, red, blue. Their smooth, rounded insides are milky white. They’ve never been in a dishwasher, and their colors after 70 years remain glossy and vibrant as oil paint. There’s a childlike, post-war optimism to the bowls’ design that appeals to me.
