Exciting news – my book is almost here!

My book is almost here!! At long last, I am thrilled to be so close to sharing what I know of this amazing story with others. As some of you already know, after the discovery of a trunk full of old family letters in the cellar ten years ago, I have been lost in the past. My research has taken me all over the world – from sapphire mines in Sri Lanka to palaces in India to dusty archives and jewellery workshops in Paris, London and New York – but for the last year, I have had my head submerged in my laptop trying to weave the various strands into a human story that encompasses the highs and lows of four generations. The result, “The Cartiers: The Untold Story of the Family behind the Jewellery Empire”, will be published before the end of this year, which is especially significant for me – 2019 marks 100 years since the birth of my beloved grandfather, Jean-Jacques Cartier, and 200 years since the birth of his great-grandfather who overcame his working class roots to found the family firm in 1847. The book is now available for pre-ordering (on both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk) – please share with anyone who might be interested! And a big thank you to all the people on here who’ve supported me with words of encouragement and ideas – it’s really helped me to get to this point. Will also be doing some events related to the launch, so watch this space… #thecartiersbook
