Book Blast: Fragments of French by Wanda St. Hilaire

Congratulations to tour winner Bridgett W. and to host winner Independent Authors.
Thank you for your interest, but this tour is now closed.

Goddess Fish Promotions is organizing a Virtual Book Blast Tour for Fragments of French, An Unexpected Journey of the Heart by Wanda St. Hilaire, a Travel Memoir available now. The Book Blast Tour will take place September 9 - 13, 2019. This tour will not include interviews or guest blogs; however, a blurb, excerpt and author bio will be provided to every host for inclusion on their blog. A PDF, mobi or ePub copy of the book is available for review.

Wanda St. Hilaire will be awarding a ribboned beret & Paris coin bag with an E-book of Fragments of French to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour, and a ribboned beret & Paris coin bag to a randomly drawn host. (International offer)

After a harsh brush with her mortality, shadowed by a premature divorce, Wanda St. Hilaire pledges to be true to her primary passion—living ardently through travel. On the fateful day her life intersects with Jean-Fran├žois, a charming Frenchman, on a bustling street in Lisbon, every fiber of her being feels as though she has finally entered the doorway to a magical world that she knew existed since she was a young girl.

St. Hilaire turns a complicated romantic ballet full of missteps into a collage of people, places, and cultures. Fragments of French is an exquisitely detailed travelogue of Portugal, Canada, France, and Mexico, filled with minor characters who delight with their humanity. However, what really makes this tale a standout is a gift for pacing and description to rival Tom Wolfe.

The hero’s journey is not only for the characters of our favorite stories or mythical legends. At some point, each of us receives the call to adventure. Fate summons the hero; we can refuse the call, or step into something that will turn our lives upside down, and potentially change everything we know to be true.

From feeling “completely disarmed, no fortress standing”, to embracing her untethered strength, the author turns this account of living life out loud into lessons for us all.
