Across the tracks and up a set of cement stairs from my grandmother's home was Belmont Village, a quaint shopping strip with restaurants, a drug store, a convenience store, and several small businesses. My grandmother, who lived in the Belmont neighbourhood, always bought her lottery tickets at the convenience store and often took me and my sister there to buy us a sugary treat.
I have lots of fond memories of the area, but little did I know my future family was waiting for me...
Back then, I had no idea Belmont neighbourhood and Belmont Village also held my fate: the most wonderful romance in my life.
When I met my future in-laws maybe 20 years later, we learned we had already met: they ran that small convenience store until the mid-80s. Moreover, their paths had crossed often with those of my mom’s family before I was even a thought.
Happy memories, shared fates, love…
How could Belmont Village not be the perfect place to set a sweet romance series about different couples on different paths to fulfilling love?
