This is the fourth published novel by Therese Bonvouloir Bayol and the second one in English. She also has published poetry, both in French and in English.
Ms.Bayol has been a French teacher for many year. She retired lately to devote more time to her writing.
She and her husband Franklin live in Rio Vista, a small California town planted on the bank of the Sacramento River.
It became famous when Humphrey the whale visited it, but that's another story.
