South County novelist Janneke Jobsis Brown will host an author reading from her first novel "Following Shadows," which is the first book in her "Finding Home" series at 4 p.m. Sept. 17 at BookSmart of Morgan Hill.
 
Brown, of Gilroy, who previously owned a private psychotherapy practice in Morgan Hill, writes of love, intergenerational trauma and the ultimate sacrifices a family makes spanning generations, according to the event announcement.
"In this Historical Family Saga, a family is transformed when elderly Jakob Vanderveer tells of his lost childhood during WWII, in the Japanese Concentration Camps of Indonesia," according to the release.
Brown, who was born in the Netherlands but also spent her childhood in Iran, Utah and Texas, is a psychotherapist now living in Gilroy. 
 
 
 
"For 60 years after World War II, death has haunted the entire Vanderveer family," reads the book summary. "Death lives within the soul of Jakob Vanderveer who vowed to be a silent keeper of secrets. He believes hiding his boyhood trauma would be the best way to raise a loving, safe family."
