October 31, 1855. Celebrated author and social champion Victor Hugo, in exile from France, is forced to relocate to the Isle of Guernsey. En route across the Channel, the trunk containing his unfinished masterpiece, Les Misérables, is lost overboard! But fate deals Hugo a strange blow as he begins to recreate the book with the help of the very people he was destined to immortalize, and he discovers what really happened the night the barricades fell, twenty years before--and all that followed afterwards.
Volume I: Resurrections is the first of six novels in the Pont-au-Change series.

About the Author
Arlene C. Harris started writing at a very early age. Her first works were epic tales involving Snoopy in his “Red Baron” mode teaming up with the cast from “Hogan’s Heroes”, mainly because at five years old she didn’t know there had been not one, but two, World Wars.
In 1996 she was the Grand Prize Winner of the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Award for her short story “His Best Weapon.” Shortly after that, she embarked on her six-book series Pont-au-Change. She has a few more books in the pipeline at this time.
Arlene lives in Nevada.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I would definitely recommend this series to any fans of Les Miserables. The author has a great grasp on each of the characters and the thoughts and the forces and ideals that drive them (along with a fluid, enjoyable narrative) that you often forget Pont-au-Change isn't written by Victor Hugo himself.
