Dear Agent for a Day:
When Kerri Ann marries tall, dark and handsome it doesn’t matter that he is Korean, until she is shunned by his conventional family. Unless being raised in a Montana shack by an alcoholic is a culture, she doesn’t have one. Her husband, California real estate developer Jae-Chun Lee, is seeped in old world bias and traditional marriage roles. He seizes her unexpected inheritance to rescue a joint venture deal which triggers every anxiety and agitation of her motherless youth.
Miscarriage, affair, marriage over. She disappears, launches her own real estate career and purchases the company she manages with a handshake, which doesn’t survive the ensuing offer from an aggressive corporation. She faces her new boss, her ex, only he’s not. He never finalized the divorce and she still wears his solitary pearl. Can the cultural divide be bridged, and why does she ask him for his mother’s broom?
This 100,000 word women’s fiction, and its potential sequels, clinch a quest to insure cross-cultural couples inhabit books as I raise my daughter born in Asia.
Thank you for consideration in representing A SINGLE PEARL.
