"Enchanting A Comedy of Errors adult fairy tale"
Amelia wants her husband to get out of the business now
that he is a father, but he refuses. Instead, Ageon
performs a separation spell turning their fairy child into
identical twins: one mortal and one fairy. Amelia takes
the fairy infant Jared and moves to Wisconsin where she
makes him behave as if he was human. Meanwhile his twin
Zarrad is raised is raised by his father who wants him to
wear fairy wigs and have pointed ears.
Twenty four years later, Jared thinks his father and
brother are dead. He is trying to reconcile with his
human wife Mona whose sister the fairy Nona is dating the
mortal Zarrad. When Mona and Jared go to Miami on a
vacation where Zarrad and his father live, the brothers,
not knowing of each other's existence, almost destroy
their relationships with their women, who believe their
significant others are crazy two timers.
Taking a classic Abbott and Costello routine co-starring
Martha Raye and by placing it inside a contemporary
fantasy, it leads to one of the most humorous tales to
come along in ages. Ageon, a fairy Mafioso type, doesn't
ever realize that he is dealing with two completely
different but identical twin offspring, one fairy and one
human. The trouble that mistaken identities cause results
in situations that will have readers in stitches. Rebecca

Much of Jared Silvan's life is a lie. Neither his fairy father nor his human twin are dead and, his human mother, Amelia Silvan, isn't an unfortunate widow left with a son to raise. In fact, she ran off with Jared shortly after his birth, expecting her estranged husband, Ageon Silvan, to find them quickly. Then his dying mother asks Jared to right the wrong she committed years ago; to go to Miami to give a letter to an unknown man, whom Jared will somehow recognize the moment they meet. Jared, knowing the task is hopeless, agrees to try for his mother's sake. In the meantime, Zarrad Silvan is hoping to marry his girlfriend, Nona, get his own business going, and get on with his ordinary life - if life doesn't throw him any curves. Up against the manipulations of Amelia Silvan, it's going to take all the magic, love, luck, and tenacity of both separated brothers to sort this puzzle out.
