"Reunion, La Réunion, Finding Gilbert"
by Diane Covington-Carter

Diane Covington-Carter's new memoir, "Reunion, La Réunion, Finding Gilbert," chronicles how her father's stories of his time in France during World War II influenced and shaped her life. One of the stories concerned Gilbert, a French orphan her father took under his wing and tried unsuccessfully to adopt and bring home to America. Fifty years after the war, Covington-Carter set out to find the man who could have become her brother. What happened is a testament to the power of love and kindness and to the way that our dreams can guide us our destinies.
