Echo of Heartbreak, A Recipe for Life by Carol Ann Kauffman
Dear Gentle Readers,
This short story/recipe book written in the form of a letter, or more accurately journal entries, from a very ill mother to her unborn daughter began as a character profile for my full length novel, MacKalvey House.
The main character is MacKalvey House is a young American woman, Michelle Rosemont, who graduated college with a degree in early childhood education, goes on a trip to England with her best friend, likes it, and decides to stay.
Michelle, though young, smart, and pretty, has issues from her past that plague her relationships. Her mother died during childbirth. Her father, ill-equipped to handle a newborn baby or adulthood, handed over custody to her maternal grandparents and never saw her again.
Her relationship with an older British author and art critic is plagued with problems. The appearance of a handsome blond Italian who seems to mirror her in so many ways further complicated the story.
Echo is the story of Melina Valentina Rossetti Rosemont, a thirty-three year old geneticist at Harbortown University Hospital, who married an English Literature professor from England.
Melina wants a baby.
Her husband wants a Corgi.
