it was amazing

Paris Letters might not hit your radar if you see the title and think, ho hum, another book about Paris, how passé. But how sad that you’d miss out. While the book is indeed focused on a creative soul escaping corporate burnout and finding herself – and love – in the City of Light, it is like no other travel memoir that I’ve read so far. Far beyond the lovely story, we have a “how-to” guide hidden within for anyone seeking a way out of his or her worker-bee life. In this well written, fast moving memoir, Janice MacLeod not only shares her stories of travel and adventure, she shares how she got there and gives the reader some excellent advice on how to prepare oneself – emotionally and logistically – to make a major shift in life. And, as an added bonus, we get beautiful illustrations by the author of this stunning city, which really bring the story to life in a way we rarely see any more. If you love Paris, you’ll love the book. If you love beautiful illustrations, you’ll love the book. If you’re desperate to get out of your current life and take a leap of faith to follow your heart for something new, you’ll definitely love this book. By the end of Paris Letters, I felt not only as if I had gone on the journey with Ms MacLeod, I felt as if I could plan and execute a similar plan myself.
