Understanding At Last


On March 30, 2015, Jean, the eighteen-year-old son of the author, Canada’s then newly appointed Consul General to Florida, was killed in Miami while attempting to steal marijuana. Near the scene, the author’s second son, Marc, aged just 15, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder as an accomplice.

This humane and humanistic book shares part of the author’s story and bears witness to the deep and lucid journey that led her to three major realizations: the path of the all-important parent-child connection, a way towards a more authentic interracial relationship, and finally, humans’ innate incredible capacity for transformation.

This poignant introspective tale of a mother’s rebuilding her life after a tragedy through her quest for meaning delivers, with humility, a message of hope and openness.
