More About the Author
I now am very happily married and live in Ooltewah, TN, a stone throw from Chattanooga. My husband Kevin, a foundry engineer, and our little Yorkie Lucas, enjoy our home in this beautiful city.
I have always loved history and writing, so of course the first novel I have published is an historical novel,entitled "In Pursuit of Abraham." It is actually based on the true story of my grandfather.
Idled by the war he decided to write a novel about the Jewish heroines of the Old Testament. His research lead him to synagogues in Paris, and the German SS thought he was a Jewish sympathizer and began to pursue him.
For his and my grandmother's safety he decided to leave France and go to the Middle East to complete his research. He actually did follow the footsteps of Abraham and his clan, and left me his never published manuscript.I have translated and incorporated several pages of the book he wrote in 1943 into my novel. Of course the protagonist in my story encounters a much different experience once in the Middle East.
I am so happy that now, 70 years later, some of my grandfather work is being published. Pretty neat having a co-author who wrote 70 years ago, on a different continent and in a different language, don't you think?
This is not a religious book, but as you follow the life of Abraham and Sarah
you are reading the exact words written by my grandfather.
I'm now working on a sequel, not yet named. I've also published several blogs on the internet, and published a short story in a book entitled "Projects Keepsake."
When not writing, I enjoy painting in several media (visit my website to see some of my art work. I also enjoy cooking (French cooking, of course.)and knitting, traveling, and interior design. Love my life!
I am also a pilot and love languages.
Please visit my website http://francinefuqua.com and look at some of my blogs. A very popular one is the one I have written about the history of French cooking. While there, take a look at my art page where some of my art is showcased. I welcome your comments: Francine@francinefuqua.com. Thank you.

Then the author suppressed the read by starting this adventure in France during the war. This added even more to the book. Complications in the family with a both husband and wife... I won't tell everything but I consider this a very good read for I feel as if I understand what people go through in hard times and the drive to accomplish a dream.
The book is a study in cultures, human nature and friendship. There is adventure, romance and danger. Archaeologists and Biblical history buffs will enjoy this book.
Perhaps Mrs Moncel would have not have stayed in Paris if she had known one of her husband's team was a beautiful college girl.
I appreciated that the author did not use foul language and also did not go into steamy sex scenes. The descriptions of the Middle East were well done without being overdone.
All in all I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
Fuqua's book takes readers along on Moncel's journey to the Middle East. She weaves history, danger, betrayal, and a controversial love affair into her absorbing storyline. Bravo!

I have just started the book, but am enjoying it. It is well written and I think the author must have done quite a bit of research to write this.Published 18 days ago by Peggy Jennings
A waste of time and publishing materials. The author seems like an egomaniac who has changed the course of history to accommodate her writing. Don't waste your time.Published 5 months ago by reaper wife
