The Medallion

OK, the most common question I am asked in my website wilmontkreis.com, “Is the medallion real?” The answer is more complicated than that and with further reflection, I think it may involve an entire new book, so stay tuned and come back next week to begin THE ALLARD BOOK SEVEN: THE WITCH. Thanks for stopping by. Read More

The Allards Book Six: The Medallion

The Medallion
THE ALLARDS BOOK SIX: THE MEDALLION:
The trailer
In 1833 Therese Allard is twenty-seven years old. Recently widowed, she lives with eight children on her late husband’s farm. Following the second brutal cholera epidemic in three years, her outspoken mother sends Sean Logan, a rich Irish abolitionist, to turn Therese’s farm into a station on Detroit’s growing Underground Railroad and to turn Therese’s sad life into one of adventure and romance.
During this significant period of regional growth amid the conflict between pro-slavery forces of the South and the abolitionist sympathies of Detroit, a group of French-Swiss families leave their homes to join the hordes of European immigrants arriving in Detroit where they blend with the Allards and their neighbors.
All of Dr. Kreis’ books are available in print and Kindle format on Amazon.com. Read More

Final question: Is the Medallion real?
This is the most common question I am asked. The Medallion provides a thread or fil conducteur, as the French would say, to all eight books of the Allards series as well as Fearful Passage North. I began blogging about the Allards series a few years ago. At the end of Book Five: The CITY IN THE WILDERNESS, I was sidetracked to my newer works, but now it is time to return to the Allards with Book Six: THE MEDALLION. So in short, stay tuned.
By the way, you can read the blogs on the earlier Allards series on my website: www.wilmontkreis.com. Go to Blog and scroll way down the left column past the photos to “tags” and find books 1-5 listed. Thanks for stopping by. Read More
