Touring Fontainebleau again as an adult, he began to appreciate its influence on French style, taste, art, and architecture. Each trip to Fontainebleau introduces him to entirely new aspects of the château's history, enriching his memories and leading him to Patrick Ponsot, who becomes Carhart's guide to the hidden Fontainebleau.
What emerges is an intimate chronicle of a time and place few have experienced. Finding Fontainebleau is for those captivated by the French way of life, for armchair travelers, and for anyone who has ever fallen in love with a place they want to visit over and over again.

Didn't know it was history
How did the narrator detract from the book?
No pep. Felt more like information.
Any additional comments?
I thought it would be a story of a boy. It's only half of that, at least well into the first 16 chapters. Lots of history. Too much for me.

Interesting return to Europe/France in the 1950s
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the reminders of my own time in Europe and Paris in 1952. I was a teenager and Carhart's recollections brought my own experience back, adding details and depth I was totally unaware of at that time.
