A Concrete Wish: a modern fable a novella by Mignon Ariel King
This is a coming-of-middle-age, modern love story for people with brains.
Creative and intellectual social misfits come together to form an alternative community in Greater Boston, Massachusetts after two of them fall in love in this historical faction novella. The book is King's first work of fiction.
The old-fashioned yet free-spirited Beantownie Emmie may have found her prince. Too bad she wasn't looking for him! Tech wizard and visual artist Mark grew up surfing beaches in California while yearning for a traditional relationship. Did fate bring this odd couple together years after a brief but intense friendship? Or is it mere coincidence? You decide.
