Dorothy reads to us of her love, travels, and loss.  Kente Cloth and Apricot Brandy is the story of a retired couple who fulfill a lifelong dream of traveling to West Africa together. They fall in love with the small fishing village of Elmina, Ghana, its people, and the expatriate community and decide to live there. They return home and while eagerly making plans for relocating the husband dies suddenly. After death, he returns, to visit with his wife, give sometimes unwanted advice, and even gets involved in his own memorial. The protagonist’s wife tells the story through a series of memoirs that are engaging, funny, sad, romantic, and at times gut-wrenching. Kente Cloth and Apricot Brandy provides a piercing cultural perspective on love, death, grief, and continuing life’s journey,

Dorothy will also be showcasing her African “Spirit Bags” which will be available at the gallery.
