"We were five-year-olds in an adult world without parents to guide us." When Lorelei Friesen and her husband arrived in Paris with their teen daughter in tow, she soon recognized she had bitten off a bit more croissant than she could chew. From the language and the size of their tiny apartment, to the myriad other cultural differences the family faced, it seemed every day overflowed with challenge, discovery, tension and joy. What could Lorelei do with all she was experiencing and feeling? She wrote. In this vivid, humorous, and most engaging journal, Lorelei shares the adventures, mishaps and successes of connecting with France and its people. As much Julia Child's My Life in France as Anne Lamott's Traveling Mercies, Lorelei's years of insights - written as short entries called "Baguettes" - will challenge and delight you into a life lived more fully and authentically. The observant eye, spiritual openness, and brave spirit she maintained until her untimely death will fortify your soul, leaving you richer for having "known" her.
