"The Knight of Sainte-Hermine"

Greetings Afrigeneas Writers:

The Cultural Services of the French Embassy announced in its News section " Unknown Dumas Novel Found: 'The Knight of Sainte-Hermine' (1869) - a previously unknown novel by Alexandre Dumas - has been discovered in the French National Library."

Dumas, author of The Three Musketeers and my favorite "The Count of Monte Cristo" is described as "His grandfather was the Marquis Antoine-Alexandre Davy de la Pailleterie and his grandmother was Marie-Céssette Dumas, a black slave from Jérémie, Saint-Domingue." (The Alexandre Dumas père Website).
