French By Heart



Saw this book on the shelf at Barnes and Noble, and put it on hold at the library. Seemed custom-written for me; expatriate family learning their way around France. And yes, it was interesting, and a pretty quick read. It just didn't catch my attention in much of the same way that some others in this genre did. Maybe it was the big expatriate community that the author had to fall back on, although they didn't live right in the midst of an english-speaking group. The most interesting bits were about the family's relationships with their neighbors, and the way the kids fit in to school.

Why did it seem custom-fit for you? Because you love France? :)

Because I read a lot of that kind of "expat non-fiction", and this one was specifically about a family with young kids.

Traveling with young children- definitely has its highs and lows...
