"Artfully weaving together three lives, three coasts and three generations, Kathy Aspden’s breathtaking debut, Baklava, Biscotti, and an Irishman is a dazzling pastiche of love, deception, acceptance and forgiveness." When the choices that Teressa, Danny and Gregory make intersect with circumstances out of their control, they must straddle the fine line between what is right and what is unimaginable to live without. Each must ask themselves what they would be willing to sacrifice for the life of a child. Baklava, Biscotti, and an Irishman is a novel about the endurance of love. Its theme revolves around the premise that nothing in life is random. There are no true accidents or mistakes; every act factors into the future. Using an interwoven storyline, Baklava, Biscotti, and an Irishman tells a beautiful tale of love, fate, and deception; touching upon three coasts and culminating in Scituate, Massachusetts in 2015 with an epic love story that leaves the reader thinking about the mysterious connections of life for a long time to come.
