Dreaming of France -- Letters From Paris

Thank you for joining this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.

I started reading Letters from Paris by Juliet Blackwell. I'm not sure where it's going yet, but it features Claire Broussard who grew up in Louisiana and travels to Paris after the death of her grandmother who raised her. She's trying to track down the artists who make masks like the one she
found in her attic as a child, and the mask might be connected to her own history, as the book jumps back in time to 1897 to tell the story of a young French woman who travels to Paris in hopes of finding work.

Hope I enjoy it and feel fully immersed in Paris.

Here's a wonderful book: a collection of true stories of people who found love late in life. Some are hilarious, some are sad. They are all told with great sensitivity. The book is in French but it's an easy read--I read it cover to cover in a day.
