Maison Plaisir

Welcome to Maison Plaisir, a pleasure house for the spirits and otherworldly beings. Where one innocent encounter binds three souls to eternity… Introvert and shy Isabelle Beaumont is being pressured by her family to find a future son-in-law, and soon. Or her family will choose one for her. Their current candidate is a jackass who took her…

Verena’s collection of creative non-fiction writings include their experiences as new Canadians living on a remote rural property - where they accumulated a yard full of goats and pigs before building a fence, and had children before running water - and other comical ESL (English as a second language) situations.

Immigrants—first, second or third generation—will relate to these humorous and heartwarming recollections. Verena’s writing captures the life of a European urban immigrant to the wilds of Canada. At first overwhelmed by the size of the country, she fell in love with it. Her stories are funny and moving. An excellent read.

Ann Walsh, author of The Barkerville Mystery Trilogy and other stories. Bringing to mind the likes of Erma Bombeck, Verena Berger’s sliceof- life stories are unique and heart warming, hilarious and thought provoking. A throughly compelling read. Donna Milner, author of “After River” and “The Promise of Rain”.
