The Orphans of Sainte Cécile

Dear blog friends during this very busy time of OWOH,
I am happy to discover new blogs and meet new blog friends.

As I promised, here is an extract of the diary found recently.
It is written in French so I thought I would translate it for you.
In fact, I am translating the whole journal and...
puting it into a book!


It is time cosuming but I cannot wait to share with you the journal of Marie, little girl aged 9 in an Orphanage called Sainte Marie .

I won't tell toooOooOOooo much but I am excited to share the news with you as the idea of this story started here on Blogland.

"25th September 1939
The holidays are over, but Miss Rochefort is a very interesting Teacher. She is so nice that I even want to like mathematics!
Solange has become my best friend. Her bed is near mine in the dormitory. Solange has never known her father and says her mother use to work in a circus. One day, the magician made her disappear and since then she’s never reappeared! I don’t really know what to think..."

I would be extreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeemely happy to hear what you think.

Much love to you all dear blog friends!

I LOVE IT! My dear, I will buy the book. SIGNed please with the nicest words :):).

But will you translate it since I can't cut and paste your book for Google translate. Nevermind that, I will just pick up French. Since this is a children's book, the words should be rudimentary?

Un début plein de suspense. La première page est superbe, j'adore le dessin.
Alors ce journal va devenir un livre, il faut nous en dire plus.
J'attends la suite du journal.

Well, you'll have to find out where her mother could have been during all that time... I wonder, i wonder... So very intriguing!

I would say, a clue in France maybe...

Good Luck!

Just to say, this won't be about magic at all!!!
This is just an extract.

Wonderful, Love it!!
Thanks for your comment on my blog :)
I gave up on doing craft fairs last year, because all the ones in my area were terrible!!
I'm glad you have a good one to go to though ;) I guess they can't all be bad!!
