Manufacturer Description

Jean-Marie spoke softly. “We were man and wife once, Sister, and we were so very happy until I died giving birth. Poor Philippe was so foolish. He walked into the sea to join me, leaving our child an orphan.”

Sister Hillaire shivered and crossed herself quickly. What had come over the child? Jean-Marie had suddenly looked so adult and spoke of marriage, childbirth, and suicide, things that were beyond her comprehension. What would a child of eight, living always at St. Yves Orphan Home know of things like that?

What They Are Saying About The Children Of St. Yves

Although Children Of St. Yves begins with certain grade school children taught at the small village orphanage by Catholic sisters, don't be confused that this is a children's story. It is not. Jeannine D. Van Eperen writes a very authentic French Romance based upon the foundation of the ballet at the Paris Opera House. This book is very French. I highly recommend it. It is a very delightful read.

Return Of The Goddess

Queen of Candelore

Rite Of Passage

The Children of St. Yves is both dreamy and riveting. Jeannine Van Eperen creates both memorable lead and secondary characters that grow and leave the safety of their small village. Jean-Marie Merchand studies in Paris to become a ballerina and once again Van Eperen convincingly conjures up the life of an artist and the sacrifices involved. These characters live on in the reader’s memory long after the book is completed.
