Overview

It seemed the ocean had always been part of his life--in St. Yves, France, in Southampton, New York, and here in California, north of Morro Bay. He loved the colors of the sunset. He mused. How do I see, people wonder, and how do I explain? On some days I see fairly clearly and on those days, I take out Jean-Marie's picture and Jennifer's. I study them and I study Johanna and the children and sometimes Johanna asks," Jef, why are you looking at me like that?" And the children will say, "Daddy, you're staring," and I look away. They don't realize how precious sight is, even sight like mine."

Editorial Reviews

internet - Anonymous Reviewer
Author Jeannie D. Van Eperen's continuing account of the orphan children of St. Yves has a way of convincing you--whether or not you want to believe in consecutive lives or past-life memories--that reincarnation is real. This book is so compelling she'll make you wonder 'Who was I in my past lives? Could the people I love in this lifetime actually be individuals I have loved during a past life?' Sometimes it sure feels that way.--5 Cups

Gigolo is Jeannine�s twenty-seventh published book. Though she cannot remember ever not making up stories, she never seriously considered writing as a profession while in school. That seemed to be something people in New York did and she lived mostly in New Mexico. Though after a while she did begin sending in manuscripts and receiving rejections. She wrote while she worked in various businesses. She was in banking, an insurance office manager, director of publicity for a university, and a motel manager. Jeannine was born in Wisconsin; lived in Chicago, Illinois; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Tustin, California; San Leandro, California; Seattle, Washington; several other places, and now resides in the state of her birth, Wisconsin. She is the daughter of Henry and Mildred Tyrack, mother of Daniel Michael McGrew and wife of Louis Van Eperen. She and Lou love to travel and often do so. Jeannine loves to include many of the places she�s visited into her stories, and because she�s been there, she knows her settings are authentic. When not traveling or writing, she enjoys reading, needlework, playing Euchre with her friends and trying to play her Casio keyboard.
