Well, it’s here. After two long years of hard work, my story has been released to the world. [Gulp!]
Inside this pretty cover design by Kerri Resnick at St. Martin’s Press, are 242 pages that take you along on my journey as I search for purpose in Paris after the loss of my mother from breast cancer. It’s the deeper story behind this blog. You’ll shop with me for my Paris apartment, get to know my neighborhood, and witness me attempt to live in a locals-only district with only my lamentable French. You’ll meet my friends in New York and Paris, and learn (possibly too much) about my family. I didn’t pull any punches when I wrote about what it took for me to change my life and create my own happiness—the challenges and the rewards—and it’s my hope that you might find inspiration within. At the very least, a diversion for a few hours. If you love Paris, or have ever felt lost or hopeless (but still dream of something more), this is for you.
