Croissant au Chocolat
I had four years of French; three in high school, one in college, which sparked an enamored interest in the Parisian
culture. While I am of Irish, English, and Italian descent, I have always wanted to visit France, but, unfortunately, have
not had the chance to do so (yet).
However, Hilary Reyl's first novel, Lessons in French, published the beginning of this month, is the next best think
to being there. This well-written story is an exquisite look into Parisian life in 1989 when the world was reeling from the
effects of the Cold War and the dismantling of the Berlin Wall. I had the privilege of reading and reviewing it for www.authorexposure.com last week. For a glimpse of what is a truly exceptional read, please take the time to follow the link and read my comments.
I also urge you to check out the other posted reviews on the www.authorexposure.com site. You just might find the perfect read for this long holiday weekend.
