Today we’d like you to imagine a lunch time spent in France while you read the Paris in Love excerpt by Eloisa James. Beyond a peak into this amazing memoir j’espère que d’avoir un croque-madame et un éclair pour le dessert. Sounds like the perfect le dejeuner, no?
The critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of historical romances, Eloisa James, chronicles one joyful year in which she literally leaves her worries behind and escapes with her husband and children to one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
We have a couple more Paris in Love library resources we’re sure you’ll enjoy the Paris in Love Book Club Party Kit. It is filled with food, drink and discussion questions. Macaroons and a good book. Bliss. There also is a Paris in Love Book Club Guide to further plan out a great Book Club night around this moving memoir.
Fresh on the heels of surviving a bout with cancer and losing her mother, Eloisa James sold her house, took a sabbatical from her university job, and moved her family to Paris. With no classes to teach, no committee meetings to attend, no lawn to mow or cars to park, Eloisa is free to focus on the ordinary pleasures of life–discovering out-of-the-way shops and sights that elude most tourists, contenting herself with many walks and simple discoveries in the city, helping her two hilarious children, ages eight and sixteen, navigate the school system, coping with her Italian mother-in-law’s raised eyebrow in the kitchen even as the woman overfeeds Milo, the family.
