France with My Father: A Journey Through Memory, Art, Time, and Family (Paperback)
When her 86-year-old father called to invite her on a three-week trip to France, Janine was thrilled. They traveled around France, eating wonderful food and drinking good wine, visiting haunts of the painter Paul C zanne, and researching their family history. Janine's grandparents were born in France, and exploring their heritage united the father and daughter. Full of descriptions of French cuisine, art, the landscape, and culture, France with My Father is a loving appreciation of the often-maligned French people who were kindness personified to the white-haired father and his daughter. The two of them drove from Paris to Provence and, in spite of often getting lost, found their way to a closer relationship.
