Manufacturer Description

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.”

What They Are Saying About Before The Star Fades

 Author, Jeannie D. Van Eperen’s continuing account about the orphan children of St. Yves, in France, 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 life-time actually be individuals I have loved during a past life?” Sometimes it sure feels that way. 5 Cups

—JoEllen Conger

Cinderella And The Stripper

Before the Star Fades is the continuing story of Jeffrey Laurance's colorful and tumultuous life and it grabbed me from the beginning, never letting me go... not even when the story was done. It's a story of life, love and most importantly... living.”

—Gail R. Delaney
