My Life in France by Julia Child

lifeinfrance.jpgThis charming memoir captures Julia Child's first impressions of France and the joyful adventures she found in her adopted homeland.

Child was first introduced to France in 1948 when she moved to Paris with her husband and Foreign Service Officer, Paul.

This book is a highly recommended companion for these bountiful fall days.
