Almost French is the charming true story of a spirited young woman who finds adventure and the love of her life in Paris. A delightful, fresh twist on the travel memoir, Almost French takes us on a tour that is fraught with culture clashes but rife with deadpan humor. Sarah Turnbull's stint in Paris was only supposed to last a week. Chance had brought Sarah and Fredric together in Bucharest, and on impulse she decided to take him up on his offer to visit him in the world's most romantic city. Almost French is an enthralling read as Sarah Turnbull leads us on a magical tour of this seductive place and culture that has captured her heart.
