Published May, 2022, the book tells stories of how I shared my footprint with the ghosts of famous people who coincidentally lived in the same places as me, often eras apart from one another.
Follow my journeys from the bleak reality of war crime trials at The Hague’s International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia to the cobbled charm of Arles, the French city where the Dutch painter Van Gogh flourished. To places as diverse as Vietnam and Ecuador, North Macedonia and Louisiana, the Netherlands and Hungary. Uncovering facts hitherto unknown to me about historic figures such as Tsar Peter the Great of Russia, Albert Einstein, Ho Chi Minh, Alexander the Great, Mata Hari, the last Creole plantation owner, Laura Locoul Gore, and the Hungarian pioneer of Covid-19 vaccines, Dr Katalin Karikó.
Her book allows readers to follow her journeys from the bleak reality of war
crime trials at The Hague’s International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia
to Arles, the French city where the Dutch painter Van Gough flourished.
What Lyn learned from some of the people in this book also affected her
Researching the work of 17th century philosopher Baruch Spinoza, who lived
near her home in The Hague, resulted in scrutiny of her own beliefs about
religion, nature and spirituality.
