Editorial Reviews

About the Author

MARY ELIZABETH RAINES is an award-winning author and part-time beekeeper. A former newspaper reporter and magazine columnist, she has written historical fiction, short stories, plays, and non-fiction. "The Secret of Eating Raspberries" is her second novel. As a distant cousin, she is happy to swim in the same gene pool as Louisa May Alcott. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Author

The idea for The Secret of Eating Raspberries came about from a true-life story told to me by a friend. Like the main character, she is a gentle, kind schoolteacher who thought she was getting a summer job in the parks department teaching little children...and like the main character, she found herself mistakenly assigned to parks maintenance,where she wound up spending the summer with an incredibly crude,foul-mouthed, shocking group of young people. I've had my own encounters with similar groups.

My idea in telling this tale was to see if very different types of people, all of them with flaws, could manage tog et along. In Hollywood, this usually happens when the "tough guys"soften and reform. In real life, that's unrealistic. How would it work--and could it work--if neither side compromised who they are?

I find that fiction rarely features an older woman as the main character, unless they are portraying her as wildly eccentric, a buffoon, or a stereotype. My heroines often come from that neglected portion of the population,older women, who are as capable of romance and curious adventures as anyone else.

Finally, like the male romantic interest, I myself at different times in my life have tended raspberries, prairie, and honeybees.

Thank you for reading The Secret of Eating Raspberries. I hope you like it. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
