Editorial Reviews

Review

When the Sun Was Mine is more than a mystery; it captures the essence of multi-generational friendship. This book reminded me of the senior citizens that I became friends with when I volunteered in a nursing home right out of college. It also touches on the issues that affect both the young and old, from the expense of a college education and life planning to elder care and end of life issues. The mystery bridges the gap between two divergent generations to show us that friendships can truly transcend anything. Darlene Jones does a wonderful job of not only weaving a compelling mystery, but showing readers the beauty of friendship as well.
When the Sun was Mine... A delightful story with endearingcharacters. The main character, a feisty woman called Flo, will capture yourheart. A most enjoyable story which will having you chuckling at the verybeginning even as you're touched by the reality of life--chuckling andsympathizing with the often unfairness of the human condition and how somepeople, both young and old  are takenadvantage of and at times even abused. The friendship between Flo and youngBrit and the mystery found between the pages are both engaging and well told. Agreat read.

About the Author

Many years ago a young girl left the safety of Canada for adventure in Africa. This was in a generation when young girls didn’t go anywhere on their own and certainly not to the “the dark continent.” I had to adapt to the climate, the culture, the language, and above all time travel, for most Malians lived the way they always had. Modern conveniences consisted of basic items such as kerosene lanterns and little else. It was the plight of Malians that inspired me to begin writing. Now that the Em and Yves series is complete, I’ve found that I’m hooked on writing and have moved on to other genres.
