Please help me welcome author Darlene Foster to Jemsbooks Blog Segment of Interview an Author.
It’s lovely to have you here Darlene. Please step up on the soap box.
Please tell us something about yourself.
I’m probably considered a late bloomer as I didn’t start writing seriously until later in life. But I have always loved to tell stories and made up tales in my head growing up on a ranch in southern Alberta. I recall pretending I was in exciting, foreign countries having an adventure. I had two wishes as a child, one was to travel the world and the other was to be a published writer one day. I have been very lucky as I have held wonderful jobs over the years, raised two amazing children, and been blessed with four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. My dreams have come true as I have travelled to interesting places and have had seven books published. Although Canada will always be my home, my husband and I enjoy our place in Spain with our adorable dog, Dot. Dreams do come true!!

While in Holland, they find an abandoned puppy and run into a mysterious gardener who is hiding a secret. All the time Amanda wonders what happened to her great-uncle, a Canadian soldier who went to Holland in 1945 and never returned, reported missing in action.
