Dacia Wilkinsonabout this book: Relationships make the world go around—everyone knows that. Only we focus on romantic relationships and not on those that challenge on a daily basis, those that motivate, encourage outside of the boundaries of romance and drama. For me, a relationship I've shied away from for years was developing a relationship with an elderly woman in friendship. I always loved my Grandmother, but beyond her—I was stunted. Being real. Until I found a picture on google of Graciella. An 86 year old Cuban woman who smokes cigars and charges tourists $1 to take her picture. Wearing outlandish clothes and brilliant hair displays, she caught my imagination and from there the story , "A Kiss in the Rain" got its birth, only I did not call her Graciella and she was not Cuban, but Adeline from Germany.
Her friendship with Danielle unfolds as she notices the younger woman struggling in life. She recognizes Danielle as Denise Clark and invites her to tea to uncover her secrets. Over tea and coffee, with a shared love of musicals and days gone by, the two women develop the relationship necessary to see them both through unforeseen events in their futures.
One lost her love to tragic circumstance and must find a way to free herself to love again.
The other lost her great love to selfishness and ambition, unable to forgive herself, to love anew.
Both women will lean on each other and laugh with one another on their journeys of self-discovery and ultimate redemption and love brought to them through faith and friendship.
(Sidebar: I've been told this book should be sold with a box of Kleenex. And the scene for the title may or may not be based upon an actual event from the author's teen years ... )
