Eloisa James’s life is about to change, at least a bit. Her mother has died of cancer, and she has been diagnosed with it, and although she is a survivor, she realizes she needs to clean out, step up, and decide what it is she really wants. What she wants is to live in Paris. After all, if she’s learned anything it’s that life can be short. She takes a sabbatical from her job as a Shakespeare professor and moves her Italian husband and two kids (11 and 15) and heads off to Paris. Her year is filled with fun, sadness, frustration, and is everything she needs it to be. I loved reading about the places I was familiar with in Paris, as well as those I was not – more exploring to do on the next visit. Enjoy the year with her, and if you’re not already in love with Paris, you, too, may be at the end.
