French Village Diaries wrote: Paulita’s writing went straight to my head; I felt every emotion Caroline was feeling, so much so this book affected my mood even when I wasn’t reading it. This book has a great story line, moved along at a nice pace and with some added interest as it jumped back and forward from the present to her time in Aix en Provence as a nanny in the late 1990’s. This is a book I will read again and I hope Paulita is busy working on her next novel.
Judy wrote: I really liked the story. Maybe it spoke to me as a mother and wife, or maybe it spoke to me as a women who wonders who she may have become if she had made different choices. Caroline was strong in lots of ways. I never would have traveled any where alone or with my kids. I am definitely a coward in that respect.
This story is my favorite of Paulita's books. I am glad I know Paulita as a fellow blogger. Way to go, Paulita.

I highly recommend this exciting page turner. I have to admit, I was a skeptic. Running off to Europe has never entered my mind when life has gotten rocky. But who hasn't wondered, just how did I get here and where is that young vibrant person I was before all my current attachments and obligations. How did this happen. Well, Caroline has history in Europe so that made perfect sense. As a lover of memoirs this story did not disappoint. Every step, thought, feeling and event was absolutely believable, yet amazing at the same time. I laughed, I cried, I worried and I cheered. Caroline revisits who she was, and examines who she has become. She rediscovers passions left behind while rediscovering a passion for her current life.
I recommend reading other reviews, some written by authors themselves, if you are not convinced this book is worth your time. (Good Reads). Reviews so eloquently written that I enjoy reading them just for the shared enjoyment of the story. "Yes that's what I thought too" !!!
