Letter from the Publisher
by Mary Jeanne Cincotta
I was in college when my boyfriend (now husband) whisked me away for our first getaway over Spring Break. To my recollection, there was no candlelit dinner or night of dancing—instead he took me to meet his grandparents in Pittsburgh. Perhaps it seemed a bit odd, but there was something quite romantic in meeting Mr. and Mrs. Rossetti, who had been together for over 60 years at the time, a true testament to real-life true love. Their farm in Plum Borough was serene and picturesque, and after making a snowman, it was the brutal exchange where my date and I hurled rapid-fire snowballs at each other that I will remember as the most fun I’d ever had on a “date.”
