Book Description HARPER PERENNIAL, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 200 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. It hasn t been easy for Ruth Rothwax, the proprietor of a successful letter-writing business, to branch out into a new greeting-card line. Her father, Edek, is driving her crazy at the office. Other women, who she thought would be supportive, are being catty and competitive, behavior Ruth swears that she will never imitate. But then Zofia arrives to turn Ruth s aspirations of sisterly solidarity--and her life--upside down. Fresh off the plane from Poland--a buxom, sixty-something femme fatale with a talent for making meatballs--Zofia wants to open a restaurant. And Edek, Zofia s most passionate admirer, wants his daughter to finance the enterprise. But Ruth knows that gleam in Zofia s eye only too well . . . and she knows it means big trouble for all of them. Bookseller Inventory # LIB9780060505707
