We'll Always Have Paris - Emma Beddington

After discovering French Elle as a moody teenager, Emma Beddington decides that she will have to become French, and move to Paris to eat baguettes, wear chic neck scarves and stroll the avenues with a petite dog.  Although the reality is not quite the same as her dreams, we follow Emma as she does indeed move across the channel and starts her new life.

Starting as a blogger recounting her experiences as a wife and mother, she has transformed her stories into an enjoyable book and I liked her style of writing and her stories of life in France and Brussels. 4/5

Though I would prefer to live across the Channel from France, living in Paris in the 1880s or 1920s would be quite an adventure, I think. It's interesting that this woman tried to live her dream, and even if it never is quite the same in real life, bravo to her!
