Reviews: Testimonials


"One of the best books that I have read, written by an American who moved to France, purchased a home and immersed herself, with her husband, in the French culture. Rosanne does a wonderful job of including the reader with her experiences."  Amazon Review

"This book is so much fun! I really enjoyed the story of this couple making their way in France after a lifetime in the U.S. ...The long, wine-filled lunch breaks, and the quiet life in a French village." Amazon Review

"I have read a dozen ex-pat memoirs and I would put this one near the top of my list. The writing is nuanced and detailed. The people and situations are described in a light, humorous way and the appreciation for the French culture is evident."  Amazon Review
