MEET ME IN THE MEADOW
NOTES: Grapefruit, Linden & Pinot Gris
“We hitched a ride on the back of a dragonfly, zipping alongside the wafting seeds of our dandelion wishes, appreciating the smallness of it all.”
Forbidden love buzzes with wild abandon in this old-fashioned tale of budding infatuation. A bored teenager on vacation flirts with a busboy from the lakeside resort where her parents have dragged her for the summer. Soon the two are meeting for secret picnics and harmless stargazing but when the hotel goes up in flames one warm July night the depth of their commitment is put to the test.
THE ABANDONED MANSION
NOTES: Cedar, Quince & Paperbacks
“I found the gray fox curled at the base of the wood stove in the library this morning, a copy of This Side of Paradise beneath her head as a pillow. I’ve decided to call her Zelda.”
Aimless twenty-somethings Calvin and Millie didn’t mean to drop off the face of the earth but when they stumbled onto an abandoned mansion while hiking in the Adirondacks, that’s just what they did. Lounging in the autumn light and lost among the stacks of paperbacks they decided to weather the winter in their found fortress. Spring brought hordes of wildlife, both indoors and out, but no sign of other humans (other than the one growing in Millie’s belly). It would be another four years before the burgeoning family would be forced out of their assumed home but they don’t plan to leave without putting up a fight.
WHEN TO BURN: One strike of a match can turn your bedroom into a verdant wild and unlock your most indecorous dreams.
