Books: C'est La Vie: An American Woman Begins a New Life in Paris and --Viola!-- Becomes Almost FrenchWhy I am recommending this book:
Well, we have considered moving to Paris one day but, lately it seems like more than just a passing notion. C'est La Vie provides a realistic look not only into what it could be like relocating to one of the greatest cities in the world, but what it could be like to actually make good on your threat to live out your adventure!
Bestselling writer Suzy Gershman (dubbed "Super Shopper Suzy" by Oprah) is our answer to Peter Mayle in this heartfelt, breezy, and funny story of starting over in Paris. Suzy had always fantasized about moving to Paris with her husband, but when he dies unexpectedly, she decides to fulfill their dream alone. Here she gives a deliciously conversational chronicle of her first year in Paris and of the dizzying delights and maddening frustrations of learning to be a Parisian. Filled with Gershman's insider's tips on everything from cooking the perfect clafoutis to-naturally- shopping, C'est la Vie is delightfully entertaining and captures the exhilarating experience of beginning a new adventure.
