A Parisian Affair

This is a story that starts with grief and ends with a fling. It is a love story, but not a love forever story. In fact there are several love stories, the one for a lost child, the one for a rebellious but so lovable daughter, new love, old love, young love, love of adventure, vicarious love, love for a new start. It is all there in the streets of Montmartre, expressed in its art, joie de vivre, ancient cobblestones. But its also the story of profound grief for the loss of a son, a wife, a brother, a grief that is about to destroy the remaining family members. This break from the everyday life is just what the doctor ordered. Away from the constant memories and familiar places, the healing process can finally really start. And it is this healing process at the end that it's at the heart of this book. Nicely written and narrated, you will enjoy this different type of love story.

I was looking forward to listening to this book as I was on my way to Paris and Montmartre.
After the main character finds a letter behind an old painting, it gives her a reason to go to Montmartre with her daughter. The narrator did a fine job of going back and forth between times, (the artist time and present). I enjoyed this story.
