I am overjoyed to announce that the sequel to my book on Jeanne Chevalier, my eighth great-grandmother is now available in both English and French! What started out as an attempt to describe the numerous adventures I’ve had during my research journey and the marvelous encounters with the extraordinary people who helped me in so many ways, has turned — after several rewrites, redirections, and edits — into something more. It’s now also the story of how the many surprising and totally unexpected twists and turns encountered during the past five years have ended up changing my life forever.
The English version of “Jeanne’s Gift: Finding Home” was published on Amazon.com on May 30, 2022. And after several months of hard work with my indispensable translator and a very supportive team of readers, the French version: “Le Cadeau de Jeanne : Trouver un chez soi” has just been published. You can find both versions, if you happen to live in France, at Le Plumier bookstore, 22-24 rue Saint Jacques in Dieppe. Both are also available on Amazon : amazon.com, amazon.ca, and amazon.fr..
Thank you so much for being on my mailing list. I very much appreciate your support of my efforts to spread the story of the life of my ancestor Jeanne Chevalier (and perhaps your ancestor as well), and of my hope now to share some of the lessons I have learned along the way in writing “Jeanne’s Gift: Finding Home!”
