I have read and loved all of Allison Winn Scotch's books and this one was terrific. Allison tells the inner lives of characters with empathy and really illuminates what each is going through and how they got there. A magical story!

“If you're not in the right place at the right time you might miss the person you're supposed to spend the rest of your life with.”
Anita Hughes, French Coast

“If you don't have love, you don't have anything at all.”
Anita Hughes, Christmas in Paris

“This is Shakespeare and Company, it's the most famous bookstore in the world." She pointed to the shelves that reached the ceiling. "Surely you have something on the feudal system or the court of the Sun King?"
"All our books are in English, and there is not a great demand for works on the French aristocracy."
"That's the problem with Americans, they're only interested in themselves," she sighed. "I learned about the Civil War every year from the fifth grade, but I never studied the Wars of the Roses.”
Anita Hughes, Christmas in Paris

Anita Alexandra,
I just ordered it on Amazon - it sounds really wonderful - my kind of book. Congratulations!

Anita Hi Alexandra,
I'd be happy to read your memoir. I have very fond memories of Bard, how lovely to grow up close by. Best of luck! Anita


Alexandra Aldrich Hi Anita, I am a fellow Bard alum! Just sending off a copy of my new memoir, The Astor Orphan, to Leon for the Bard collection. I hope you will consider reading/rating my memoir- about growing up at Rokeby just a few miles south of Bard. No pressure. Thanks, Alexandra
