Great memoir! Being from New York, an Italian American, a lover of Paris, and having lost my mother to cancer 7 years ago, this book really resonated with me on so many levels. The author gives you such insight into her journey. You feel like you are a part of her grieving process, her self discovery, and her growth. I loved all of the characters, especially the Parisian ones. At its core, this book is about self acceptance and creating a life for yourself that works and finding your family everywhere you are.
