"His view of life was changed because of an unusual meal, breakfast. What made this breakfast so unusual was that he had to have it instead of supper that night, and there was only one place serving it that late. With this meal Bob would be served a side dish of one of life’s universal truths: The place and time where you meet people who will change your life is preordained. Before that, at age thirty, he had concluded that life was something that happened to you, like falling into a river and going with the flow.
When Bob Ardoin, a young Cajun man, moves to New Orleans, he meets lovely, Guatemalan, pediatric nurse Emilia Lima in a chance encounter at The Diner, a popular hangout for nurses working at the nearby hospital. This memoir shares the often humorous story of this couple’s chance meeting, their lively courtship, and subsequent marriage.
Composed in a dynamic, narrative style, Footprints in My Heart tells the memorable story of Bob and Emy as they learn about each other and their different cultures. In spite of a few missteps, they develop a deep bond that ultimately leads them to the altar."
