Belgian Philippe Evrard was a vibrant man with a wonderful zest for life and a dream of one day publishing a collection of stories in the United States. Now a loyal and dear friend he met in 2009 is making his dream come true. Shared posthumously, Evrard’s stories—some fictionalized, some true—provide a nostalgic glimpse into his life and imagination, beginning with his childhood. In a small village in Belgium, Evrard details how a black singer at midnight mass during World War II captured the heart of all attending the service, including his own at just six years old. As his tales move through his varied experiences and people he met along the way, Evrard leads others down a fascinating path into not only his own heart and mind but also into the hearts and minds of others. In this whimsical and treasured collection of stories told in both English and French, a Belgian man shares his memories, hopes, and dreams from a life well-lived.
