Chance had brought Sarah and Frdric together in Bucharest, and on impulse she decides to take him up on his offer to visit him in the worlds most romantic city. Sacrificing Vegemite for vichyssoise, the feisty journalist does her best to fit in, although her conversation, her laugh, and even her wardrobe advertise her foreign status. But as she navigates the highs and lows of this strange new world, from life in a bustling quartierand surviving Parisian dinner parties to covering haute couture fashion shows and discovering the paradoxes of French culture, little by little Sarah falls under its spell: maddening, mysterious, and charged with that French specialtyseduction. a love song to Paris and France, yes, but a love song in a minor keySarah Turnbull seems to have gotten a lot closer to the real thing than most of us who will always be on the outside looking in... --Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World jewels of insightand the book shines with themmake Almost French a worthy read.
