Would you have the courage to restart your life - and give love a chance - in a completely different country? Vida Toujours has struggled all of her life, working hard for everything she´s ever earned, using her all-consuming job as a Chicago doctor to numb herself against the emptiness she carries inside. Overprotective of her heart, Vida pushes people away, and despite her loneliness, she´s made an art of remaining detached and disconnected. Then she receives an unexpected letter from France. An aunt that Vida never knew she had has died, willing Vida a chateau in the French countryside. What feels like an impossible dream is now Vida´s reality: She´s an heiress, and the last living member of a family legacy steeped in secrets. When Vida arrives at the chateau, there are more surprises in store for her. She could never have predicted the effect that Renee Chanson, the fiery and captivating woman she meets at the chateau, would have upon her. And she could never have imagined how the decades-old mystery of her family´s past would, at last, unfold. Can Vida learn to trust and open her stubborn heart to the possibility of a French romance? Or will she make the same mistakes her mother made and let the love of her life run away from her, leaving her to nurse a permanent broken heart? French Lessons is a poignant, passionate novel about coming to terms with the past and learning to love; a tender romance to curl up with. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephanie Murphy.

French Lessons in Love...and some lessons in language too: Anamika
A single day in Paris changes the lives of three Americans as they each set off to explore the city with a French tutor, learning about language, love, and loss as their lives intersect in surprising ways. Josie, Riley, and Jeremy have come to the City of Light for different reasons: Josie, a young high-school teacher, arrives in hopes of healing a broken heart. Riley, a spirited but lonely expat housewife, struggles to feel connected to her husband and her new country. And Jeremy, the reserved husband of a renowned actress, is accompanying his wife on a film shoot but feels distant from her world. As they meet with their tutors - Josie with Nico, a sensitive poet; Riley with Phillippe, a shameless flirt; and Jeremy with the consummately beautiful Chantal - each succumbs to unexpected passion and unpredictable adventures. Yet as they traverse Paris´s grand boulevards and intimate, winding streets, they uncover surprising secrets about one another - and come to understand long-buried truths about themselves. 1.
