MY LIFE IN FRANCE

Avis de journaliste - Kirkus - Jane Doe

"Ooh, those lovely roasted, buttery French chickens, they were so good and chickeny!"

This was an amazing look at an amazing woman and her quest to blaze a new trail. She did not fit into the standard mold of her time and she did not let that stop her. She opened up a new world to many ... Consulter l'avis complet

I have a love/hate relationship with memoirs. I tend to love the beginnings and get bored by the end. This was the case with My LIfe in France. Too much detail. Many parts dragged. Then, I loved parts ... Consulter l'avis complet
