In this album of wonderfully witty and poignant essays, S.Tiberghien captures stories from thirty-five years of family life in Europe. The collection describes a love story and from that matrix a meditation about many kinds of love. Light and dark days, funny and momentous ones are celebrated as faith and an energetic capacity for friendship define the family´s cross-cultural path. The pages fly by and before we know it, the six children have grown. In the new silence, familiar footsteps insist that she write.

Maucage
A beautiful memoir of an American woman's falling in love with in France many decades ago, raising a cross-cultural family (6 children!), and finding fulfillment at home and then as a writer. A series of lovely vignettes by the founder and head of the Geneva Writers Group, now in its 23rd year, Jungian, writing instructor, and wonderful inspiration to writers and creative people at all stages of development. This book easily earns its permanent position on my bedside table -- often the only one I've got there at hand's reach.

Step by step, image by image, I was in the palm of Susan Tiberghien's elegant hand as she lead me across the Atlantic into France and Italy and Switzerland. This is the memoir of a life, of time spent, of relationship to children, partner, relatives, neighbors, environment and, above all, self. I was entranced. Plus, bonus, it has a ghost story. Beautiful.

Susan has captured the expat's life in loving detail. Not everyone's experience is like this, of course, but then not everyone has a heart as big and loving as Susan. I raised a family while my husband's job took us to Colombia, Japan and Great Britain before settling in Switzerland. This book resonated deeply with me. I loved it!

Having joined in the generous celebration of “Footsteps” coming out, what else can a reader do but fall in love with the huge heart Susan Tiberghien is, with her exquisite humor, humility and courage, her wit, authenticity and fun, and end up laughing and crying!
What a blessing to know Susan as an exceptional human being, revealed through her words!
Bil

I loved this book for its simplicity and deep meaning. Savor it like a tasting of expensive Swiss chocolate and fine Cabernet.
The writing is brilliant--I couldn't put the book down. What a picture it gives of a busy and caring life within an international context. And how much of that life was submerged

for years, until the author's work was done, raising a wonderful family.

I love the poetic vignettes. The photographs contribute images that complement the text. What a loving and dutiful wife, mother, daughter-in-law! An elegant restraint makes the few, critical passages (the mild outburst over the instant mashed potatoes for Mothers' Day!) more telling. And the quiet wisdom in finding solutions, like the second potato

peeler for her husband. Tiberghien's story of achieving a successful marriage is the sturdy subtext of this memoir. I admire the work unreservedly.
