Beginning in 1812, this fictional biography follows the life of Henriette Delille, a free woman of color who founded the Sisters of the Holy Family.

Set in the summer of 1963, this story follows young Caroline on her trip to visit her grandmother in Fairhope, Alabama, where she witnesses her first jubilee. When this rare meteorological event occurs during the early morning hours, aquatic creatures such as flounder, crabs, and shrimp involuntarily wash up on the Mobile Bay shore. Locals and visitors alike excitedly rush to the waterfront to collect the delicacies.
If it were possible to travel back to the time when horses and carriages, instead of automobiles, swayed up the streets of New Orleans, perhaps we would meet Jane. The title character is an orphan whose background is a mystery to those who take her in. The beautiful little girl grows up through her many adventures in the old city, such as seeing a Boeuf Gras walking through the streets of New Orleans on Lundi Gras (the day before Mardi Gras). Jane’s unique childhood experiences give readers a wonderful look at real places and events of days gone by.
