In Evergreen Leaves, the characters are worldly-wise and affluent. They are involved in the arts, journalism, the performing arts, music and philanthropic support of the arts. Although sophisticated, some of them are unwittingly deceived in “A Quiet Evening” and “The Leather Envelope,” both of which are set in Washington, DC; and in “That Friday,” which is set on Marco Island in southern Florida.
In “Visiting Lena,” the main characters experience generational conflict. And in “The Nighttime Limousine Tour,” characters fall victim to crime. Both stories are set in Paris, France.
Other stories in Evergreen Leaves are set in the Washington, DC - Maryland area and are titled: “In October,” a story that involves mismatched lovers; “Maureen’s Gift” which follows the journey of one gift; “The Promise” in which a character makes a unique vow; and “A Christmas Surprise,” in which a couple and their friends experience Yuletide together in France.
