The charming true story of a spirited young woman who finds adventure--and the love of her life--in Paris. This isnt like me. Im not the sort of girl who crosses continents to meet up with a man she hardly knows. Paris hadnt even been part of my travel plan... A delightful, fresh twist on the travel memoir, Almost Frenchtakes us on a tour that is fraught with culture clashes but rife with deadpan humor. Sarah Turnbulls stint in Paris was only supposed to last a week. Chance had brought Sarah and Frdric together in Bucharest, and on impulse she decided to take him up on his offer to visit him in the worlds most romantic city. Sacrificing Vegemite for vichyssoise, the feisty Sydney journalist does her best to fit in, although her conversation, her laugh, and even her wardrobe advertise her foreigner status. But as she navigates the highs and lows of this strange new world, from life in a bustling quatierand surviving Parisian dinner parties to covering the haute couturefashion shows and discovering the hard way the paradoxes of France today, little by little Sarah falls under its spell: maddening, mysterious, and charged with that French specialty-sduction. An entertaining tale of being a fish out of water, Almost Frenchis an enthralling read as Sarah Turnbull leads us on a magical tour of this seductive place-and culture-that has captured her heart.
