Susan Tiberghieńs poetic memoir evokes a life fully lived and closely observed. In elegant prose and poetry, she presents the landscapes of her time with fresh eyes, gentle humor, and a generous spirit. The rooftops of Grenoble, the hills above Lago Maggiore, Geneva in its white fog, are the settings for a French-American romance, an international domestic tale, full of children and laughter, and at the end a new direction and revelation. Footsteps, A European Album is a wise book, and a pleasure to read.

Peter Meinke, The Piano Tuner, Zinc Fingers

In this album of wonderfully witty and poignant essays, S.Tiberghien captures stories from thirty-five years of family life in Europe. The collection describes a love story and from that matrix a meditation about many kinds of love. Light and dark days, funny and momentous ones are celebrated as faith and an energetic capacity for friendship define the familýs cross-cultural path. The pages fly by and before we know it, the six children have grown. In the new silence, familiar footsteps insist that she write.
