As part of the Mitford Series this book made me happy as I sat down with old friends and caught up on their lives. It cathces up with Father Tim and Cynthia a little while after their return from their trip overseas.
In August of 2017, Dave, my dad and I went on an Alaskan Cruise with Princess Cruise Lines. As I was looking through the brochure of activities onboard, they said that they were going to have.a book club discussion of this book on the last day at sea. I jumped at the chance and went to pick up a copy. I read a lot on that cruise. One morning we even got locked in our room. It took the crew an hour and a half to disassemble the entire handle and replace the lock. Instead of being upset, I was thrilled, because that was more time to read the book.
So Dave went out of town Wednesday for business and I went to a "tent" meeting at a friend's church that didn't get over until about 9:15. When I came home, I was ready for bed. So I moved the decorative pillow and was about to pull back the comforter when I looked down and there was a lizard. My first thought was Oh, Dave must have left it there as a joke to scare me. Almost instantaneously I thought, no, Dave never plays jokes on me and I realized that it was a real, live, breathing lizard.
During the Christmas Season of 2018 I read several Christmas books, which I always want to do, but usually never get around to completing even one. This was the last one that I read and I finished reading it in early January. I think that I found this book at a public library book sale. The title caught my eye becaause everything about Paris catches my eye since falling in love with the city after our visit in February of 2017. John Baxter is a foodie which makes the book interesting in and of itself.
