You ever read a book and turn the last page knowing absolutely nothing about what you just read, yet, the entire time you were reading you just couldn’t stop?

This is the story about a working class guy with whom we are never introduced. He is our nameless first person voice. This is a quiet story about three middle-aged friends who live in a suburb just outside Paris, and find that they are ‘similarly adrift’. This is a story about any one of us –

The melody from Fabre’s writing emanates off every page. A soothing melody that finds itself in seamless alliance with the three characters who want nothing more than something else. A flawless subdued tone that keeps the reader engaged.

La Quinzaine Litteraire says Dominique Fabre is “An author who lays bare the essence of Paris.” I say, Dominique Fabre is “An author who lays bare the essence of ….. [humanity].”

The Whisper of God

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
