“Dana had the patience of a saint with this electronically-challenged writer. I hope to be working with her again in the future!”
I grew up in Zurich, Switzerland, speaking French at home but had to learn German in a hurry when I entered school. Many years later I met my husband-to-be while an exchange student in Boston and eventually moved to the US. Twenty years later I felt comfortable enough with the English language and wrote stories for children. Now that my time is my own, I enjoy the research and love writing novels set in the 19th century.
Twins Nicolas and Madeleine, born 1836 in Paris, France, are separated at birth and grow up in wildly different surroundings: Nicolas with a poor but amazing wet nurse, Madeleine in the loving comfort of an upper-class family in the city of Rennes. What brings them together is, of all things, the Crimean War (1854/55). If you want to know how this happens and to what it leads – read the book!
