The Secret Life of France, 18 Mar. 2014
I loved this book. Having visited France many times, I think this book certainly got under the skin of the French psyche and opened my eyes in terms of their political stance, recent history and their attitude to women and marriage, not to mention the education of children. I have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone with a love of France and perhaps like me, an over romantic view of the people. Our book club covered it recently and it provided a wonderful evening of discussion.
