Author’s Note

The story for my novel, Searching for Eternity, sneaked up on me and tapped me on the shoulder as I discovered the city of Lyon and her history. Following his father’s dubious disappearance, adolescent Emile de Bonnery is forced to leave his native France for Atlanta, Georgia, never suspecting what awaits him in the South of 1964–culture shock, racism, and friendship with a strange girl named Eternity Jones.

He brings with him to America an odd collection of ‘treasures’ used by his father during the French Resistance. With the aid of these ‘treasures’, Emile and Eternity find themselves on a journey through abuse, betrayal and prejudice which will ultimately lead them into a spiritual quest for healing.

Spanning four decade, their journey unfolds like a spy story and its conclusion shows what happens in the midst of complex human relationships when an adolescent goes searching for eternity.
