Description

Say bonjour to a whole new way of life! Take one French widower, his two young children, and drop a former city girl from Chicago into a small town in southwestern France. Shake vigorously... and voila a blended Franco-American family whose lives will all drastically change. Floating on a cloud of newlywed bliss, Samantha couldn't wait to move to France to begin her life with her new husband, Jean-Luc, and his kids. But almost from the moment the plane touches down, Samantha realizes that there are a lot of things about her new home--including flea-ridden cats, grumpy teenagers, and language barriers--that she hadn't counted on. Struggling to feel at home and wondering when exactly her French fairy tale is going to start, Samantha isn't sure if she really has what it takes to make it in la belle France. But when a second chance at life and love is on the line, giving up isn't an option. How to Make a French Family is the heartwarming and sometimes hilarious story of the culture clashes and faux pas that, in the end, add up to one happy family.show more

Review quote

-Like its author, Samantha Verant's new book is sweet and sassy, told from the heart. Her story of creating a new family and becoming a different kind of mom is brave and vulnerable. A tale of what happens when we go looking for our best lives and best selves.- - Elizabeth Bard, New York Times bestselling author of Lunch in Paris and Picnic in Provenceshow more
