I just finished my latest novel, The Immigrants, which is the story of my first ancestors who came to North America from Normandy, France in 1645 AD. New France at that time had less than a thousand settlers on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. Jacques Goulet and his young wife, Marguerite, soon became land owners and started a family that ending up being twelve children, ten of them boys, and two girls that did not survive childhood. It is a story of struggle, hope, and success. I am now editing and rewriting it. I hope to have it published by the fall market season.
