I adore reading Rebecca's very entertaining blog everyday and I thoroughly enjoyed reading her wonderful book. Rebecca and her very brave family relocated to a small town in France for four years, and she recounts her memories so beautifully. My parents moved my family to France when I was entering 4th grade over 100 years ago! It is amazing how she describes the schools, narrow streets and markets just as I remember them. This is the kind of book that you simply can't put down and you will find yourself laughing out loud as you read it.
From The Philadelphia Inquirer
Ramsey, along with her husband, two kids, one baby, and one very old cat, moved to France for four years, and their adventures are recounted in this delightful memoir, as Ramsey takes the mundane - such as the old woman across the street and her aged cat's health problems - and turns it into nuggets of delight
