The Secret Flight of Madame Lancard

Madame Lancard

Two Women,
Two Centuries,
Two Countries…

We all dream, and most of us, at some time in our lives yearn to be free of the conventions and the rules that often crush our dreams.

The Secret Flight is about two women, living in different centuries and countries, each battling with the restrictions of their time and place in history.

Living in the 1930s, Jessica Summers is determined to be taken seriously as a journalist who is compelled to shed light on the critical issues of the day, especially workers’ safety and bargaining rights. But she meets with roadblocks even from people who should be open and fair minded. In an effort to crack the inner circle of political power, she inevitably finds out just what she is made of.

Genevieve Lancard, living in Lyon France in 1899 has a dream of taking to the skies and traveling the world as her husband does, but is challenged by his abuse, as well as the criticisms from the provincial friends and neighbors who seek to contain her boundless spirit and dreams.

Pressing up against the walls of oppression, the two women learn that freedom often comes at a very high price.

Purpose and Passion Yields Peonies and Profit for Bernardsville Entrepreneur
(My Central Jersey – May 13-2013)

Kathleen Gagan is the first to admit that her days are long and there’s always too much to do, but the challenges are balanced, she says, by moments of sheer bliss.

With the fortitude of the peonies she cultivates, the 52-year-old Gagan is living proof that in midlife one can take a right-hand turn into an entirely new career and enjoy satisfaction and success on one’s own terms.

“This is the best spring I can remember,” said Gagan, owner of Peony’s Envy, a display garden and nursery in Bernardsville. “Last year, spring came early and it was hot. This year spring has been long, slow and cool. We are actually enjoying real weather.”

Six years ago, the mother of two transitioned from working as an international corporate consultant and linguist to full-time farmer and entrepreneur out of a desire to work from home and spend as much time with her children as possible.

Initially she thought she might grow peaches, but quickly turned her attention toward the peony — a hardy and colorful flower that can continue to bloom for more than 100 years.

“The extraordinary beauty of the peony drove one Chinese empress to move her palace to a more suitable location so that the tree peonies she loved would grow better,” said Gagan during an appearance on “The Martha Stewart Show” in March 2010.
