Review

A poignant meditation on self-love, maternal loss and the restorative force that is Paris.
Jennifer Coburn, author of "We ll Always Have Paris"

Lisa Anselmo s tale of striving and self-discovery is proof of the magical magnetism of the City of Light. She might have entitled it Getting to Paris," where a new life can begin."
David Downie, author of "A Passion for Paris: Romanticism and Romance in the City of Light"

Charming. This book feels as if Lisa Anselmo is telling you her Paris story over coffee at a cafe. An intimate account of learning to grieve the loss of a parent while, at the same time, striving to live your dreams.
Janice MacLeod, "New York Times"-bestselling author of "Paris Letters"

"" Leading with her heart, Lisa takes us inside the real Paris: the Paris of intermittent ecstasy and agony, triumph and frustration, magic and dysfunction. Her honesty, vulnerability and simple "joie de vivre" through the journey make it a pleasurable trip indeed.
Amy Thomas, author of "Paris My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate)""
