What our readers are saying...
"Great book! I read it straight for 5 nights....couldn't put it down" ~ Linda Macey Catlett
“I’m so sad … but elated at the same time! I was left feeling as though I have been blessed with a wonderful reminder of what true unconditional love looks is! I so wish I was just starting reading Baklava, Biscotti, and an Irishman…reader’s remorse is setting in!” ~Adrienne Fontaine
“I loved this book!!!!!!!” ~ Gail Stevens Martineau
“I loved your book…I was sad when the book ended. The relationship that Danny and his wife had was solid in the face of adversity – a beautiful example of devotion so seldom seen today. I’ve shared the book with my daughters.” ~ Susan McGann
“I really enjoyed Baklava, Biscotti, and an Irishman. As I got engaged with the characters it was hard to put down. I liked the way it was divided it into short segments which allowed me to break off when I needed to but kept me moving on, “Oh, just one more short section, then another…” Aspden’s vast use of detail was amazing, from medicine to construction to the culture of Greece and Italy! And to top it off, those bits written in Greek and Italian – wow! The author’s breadth of knowledge combined with the level of research certainly enhanced an already beautiful story. Congratulations on an amazing first novel!” ~ Lois Cronin
“It’s my 70th birthday today – a day of excitement and reflection. I just finished reading Baklava, Biscotti, and an Irishman. The depth of research, character development and particularly their relationships, were incredibly heart-felt and powerful. Congratulations on a wonderful novel.” ~ Jean MacKenzie
