Part travelogue, part love story, it documents the experience of an Australian journalist who moves to Paris, tries to adapt to live there, but fails miserably at times, and of the seismic impact this has on her romance with a Frenchman to whom she's now married. Highly entertaining." The Australian Women's Weekly
