Priscilla Lalisse Jespersen
Every expatriate holds a special dread of an unexpected middle-of-the-night phone call. It usually means that a dear loved one is gone and because of the distance from home, there's nothing the expat can do about it. At least, not right away. American Priscilla Lalisse-Jespersen learned that lesson the hard way. Lalisse-Jespersen, author of the novel Stockdale, is back, this time with the account of suddenly losing her father while she was thousands of miles away, living in Paris. Brimming with love and loss, Next of Kin takes the reader on an emotion-fraught journey, one that ends with acceptance, hope, and ultimately, celebration.
