    Francine, you did a great job on this book - an abundance of information on species & trailers - plus. Beautiful pictures. I love the pictures on your web site also. This is a great contribution to all of us who love the African violets.
    Thank you

    This is much more than just a very beautiful book. The information covers many areas not found in other readings on African violets. I have found the information regarding trailers very useful. Reading about the species plants has made me vow to acquire some for my collection. Thank you Francine for writing such a wonderful book.

    I grew up on a farm called St. Paul in Natal, South Africa. My grandfather bought it from Baroness von St. Paul-Illaire in 1925. She was Walter's brother and eloped from Germany with their groom, Mr Mereis. They built the house we grew up in. There is a large oak tree planted by the Baroness in the garden. The seedling was from their home in Germany and was apparently brought by Walter from Canada. We called it the Canadian swamp oak. It is still there, as is my family. My father bought a farm nearby and called it Illaire. I live in BC and have my flock of St. Paulia.

    What a treasure trove of information! It is clear Francine Pilon worked diligently on this complicated subject. The photos and illustrations augment the text wonderfully. This is a must read for every African violet enthusiast.
