Win a Bittersweets Book Cover Bracelet – Enter by November 30.

Bittersweets grew out of my love for Philadelphia.  Terry Kovac lives in the house at the top of Mount Pleasant Avenue where I lived with my young family in the late seventies. The view of Alden Manor in the distance, the concert pianist practicing Rachmaninoff every morning, the young lovers having an after midnight argument on the way to the K bus, all true. The Acme grocery store around the corner, the used furniture stores, tea shop, The Craft Store and Cheese Shop, bookstores on Germantown Avenue; my favorite haunts almost forty years ago.

When I close my eyes, I can hear the train coming up the hill, stopping at the station. If I looked out the corner of the round window that was really our bedroom on the third floor and not Terry’s living room, I could see my husband trudging up that hill with his briefcase.

Back in those days, I was a weaver, and Earle’s apartment on the first floor was the reconfigured space for my weaving studio.

Our days there were short-lived; a year after we’d arrived, my husband was transferred to Manhattan, and we moved to New Jersey. But I never forgot that brief, glorious time. My wonderful next-door neighbor, who remained a soulmate until her death in August was my first African-American friend. After being raised in white Dearborn, Michigan, it was a privilege and an honor to know her. I cried when I wrote the stories about the neighborhood, the camaraderie couldn’t be matched. I longed to tell her, but it was too late.

Bittersweets is a transition from my usual romance stories; the word steamy is appropriate to describe the tales. The characters are passionate about each other and I allow that to shine through.
