Great Reads for the Francophile

I have always loved to read. Period.
One of the gifts I give to myself is the time to read.
These are two of my favorites.

On Rue Tatin (Living and Cooking in a French Town) by Susan Loomis is delightful. As is Tarte Tatin (More of La Belle Vie on rue Tatin). Both books are filled with wonderful recipes created by Susan. One day I would love to attend her cooking school. To put it in a nutshell, she combines building a family with building a business in France.

Trail of Crumbs (Hunger, Love, and the Search For Home) by Kim Sunee is a memoir.
Kim was left on a bench in a marketplace as a young child. Later adopted by a family from New Orleans, she ends up living in France. This book depicts her search for self. As Kim finds peace in cooking, there are some wonderful recipes included in her book.

These books would make a great summer read.

Hi Barb!
I will keep your son in my prayers for a full and speedy recovery! My brother has Type 2. He has had, among other issues, blisters that form on his one leg. They think that it is from too much fluid retention and that is one issue they are looking at. I pray God will find the answer, I know he knows what it is! He is my only sibling left and he is so dear to me.
Thank you so much for visiting me and for your prayers, I appreciate it so much!! I like your line of products and am going to mark you as a favorite if that's okay.
Hugs, Sherry

Hi Barb,
Both of these French~inspired books look great! Thanks for the suggestions! I'll have to check my library this week. I love to read about France; it is like a mini vacation! I've been reading about your son and hope everything works out well for him. (((HUGS)))
