Two headstrong women in their forties coming from different moral directions clash within the confines of a mill town rife with secrets and scandals. Their narratives relate how an heirloom quiche recipe and baking rivalry address complicated mother-daughter relationships, romantic rifts, misdeeds and mishaps.
Augusta Bergeron – the town siren whose penchant for reckless behavior unwittingly wreaks havoc which alters the lives of those caught in the crossfire of a tragedy.
Lindsay Metcalfe – the strait-laced, historian-in-residence hailing from Boston who gets more than she bargains for when taking a self-centered adolescent under her wing.
Targeted Age Group: 40 and over
A Jill-of-all-Trades in the progression of life—a factory fatale gluing eyes on pairs of lion slippers at Capitol Heel Lining, collating booklets at Sidney-Higgins Bookbinding, getting downright dirty while screwing at H & H Screw Products, and teaching in the third-grade classroom trenches–Eva Pasco turned a corner after retirement.
Reviving a dormant flair for writing, she braved the arduous journey along the Indie author’s untrammeled path, a route chosen to bypass literary agents and take full control of the publication process from cover to copy through the genre of Contemporary Women’s Fiction.
Shortly after the publication of her debut novel, ‘Underlying Notes,’ based on the author’s obsession with perfume, Eva was interviewed by a reporter for TIME Magazine (March 17, 2008) and quoted in the article, “Scents and Sentsitivity.”
Her recently published novel, ‘An Enlightening Quiche,’ has received much acclaim:
Midwest 5-Star Review
2017 ATAI Fiction Finalist (5-Star Badge)
1st out of 77 Books Set in Rhode Island (Goodreads)
Readers’ Favorite 5-Star Seal
2017 Top Female Author Nominee (The Authors Show)
Underground Book Reviews (Perfect Pitch Pick)
In addition to having written two novels, Ms. Pasco has composed over one hundred Memoirs, as well as numerous essays pertaining to the Sixties, and her native state of Rhode Island. She also writes a weekly blog related to writing and social marketing. All of her literary works can be viewed on her web page at Authors Den.
Eva enjoys the simple pleasures of going out for breakfast or lunch. Since Rhode Island has 400 miles of coastline and over 100 accessible beaches, she walks the shore throughout the four seasons. She also takes great pleasure in driving along scenic routes listening to the radio. As she is so fond of saying:
“On the road, as in life—I accelerate!”
