My New Young Adult Novel Is Released!


My New Young Adult Novel All the Mountains We Can Climb Is Released!


Since her father and sister died in a car crash, Noelle survives with the last words she told them seconds before the accident – words so unspeakable, she’s never shared them with anyone. A year later, still ashamed and guilty, she adheres to her mother’s rules, established after the tragedy.

Until she secretly applies to an East Coast college that she toured with her father and breaks her promise to study in California.

Now graduating from high school Noelle must tell her mother. As if she needed more challenges her French uncle’s sons arrive unexpectedly from Paris.

Charismatic Quentin witnessed one of the Paris’s terror attacks. Not without consequences. Quiet Manu cooks like a chef and reads Noelle so well, perhaps because he knows something about grief and guilt too.

Is Noelle’s last summer before college her chance to move on?

Set in the California’s Sierra Foothills and Yosemite National Park, populated with a cast of American and French characters, this is a story about the universality of loss, the weight of guilt versus the power of forgiveness, and the possibility of another chance.



As always, I thank you for your support. It means everything to me.




  1. Congratulations, Evelyne! Hugs.

  2. Congratulations! I just ordered it and look forward to reading it soon!!!

  3. Congratulations, Evelyne!! Love the sound of the story, and although I know we shouldn’t … I can’t help judging this book by its (gorgeous) cover! Have been AWOL on social media, but I will contact you to announce this book on my site. Look forward to reading this! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  4. Thank you, Kimberly for your kind words of support. I’m glad you like the cover. I do too! It would be an honor to be featured on your blog. Thank you again.

  5. Congratulations!

  6. Congratulations Evelyne!

  7. Congratulations!!

  8. Behind the Story says:

    Congratulations, Evelyne. It sounds like a wonderful, meaty novel with lots to ponder and lots of warmth. And … your description of it is well done. That’s not easy.

    Coincidentally, a character in the novel I’m writing is named Noelle. She has a tiny but crucial role in the story.

  9. Ordered. You kept that quiet Evelyne 🙂 Looking forward to reading though I’m hardly in the YA category. Wishing you every success with it.

    • Thank you very much for your support, Roy. Particularly since you are not in the YA genre. In fact, the characters are just finishing high school and one of the French guys has even finished a year in college. Let me know how you feel when you’ve read it.
      Yes, I kept it quiet, only because the publication date was not firmly set until lately.
      Again, thank you for trusting me.

  10. Congrats, Evelyne!

  11. Felicitations! It sounds wonderful!

  12. Double prouesse donc, puisque je vois que le livre est rédigé en anglais, et double bravo !!! Si mes petits-enfants, en grandissant, deviennent brillamment bilingues, je te fais la promesse qu’ils auront ton livre entre les mains. Mais pour l’instant, c’est un peu tôt : ils n’en sont encore qu’à apprendre à parler un français qui nous soit juste compréhensible !!! Bonne chance à toi et à ton livre, Evelyne. Une bise de France !

    • Merci, Marie. J’apprécie tes mots de félicitations et de soutien. En effet, sans doute un roman un peu trop mature pour tes petits enfants, même s’il n’est jamais trop tôt de commencer à lire 🙂

  13. Many congratulations Evelyne. I loved reading ‘Trapped in Paris’, such great characters and a great story. This one sounds just as intriguing, wishing you lots of luck with it.

    • Thank you so much, Andrea. This new novel is very different from Trapped in Paris and the initial feedback is good. Waiting for more 🙂
      I am impatient to see your work out too!

  14. Congratulations, Evelyne! Looking forward to buying it!:)



  16. Congratulations!!!

  17. Congratulations, Evelyne!
