I LOVE FRANCE
And maybe you do too! If you have recently read a good book in connection with France,
or watched a movie, read an article on France, etc,
please mention it in the comment section
and add a link to your blog post if you have one.
I will regularly post a recap of all the links mentioned.
If it’s a book review, why not enter it in the 2015 French Bingo?
In full compliance with FTC Guidelines, I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was in no way compensated for this post as a reviewer, and the thoughts are my own.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK
As Charles Kaiser highlights in the afterword to his book The Cost of Courage, many Americans know close to nothing about the French Resistance and even forget about German sympathies of famous American appeasers, as well as anti-Semitic organizations blooming in the US in the 1930s. To remedy this amnesia, I highly recommend you read this suspenseful history book on the German Occupation of France during WWII and how one family, and all the French population, dealt with it.

I hope you are enjoying this special week-end. Finally it’s warming up around Chicago, good to be able to just read in T-shirt on the porch!
It is so colder than usual that cicadas are at least a month late, compared to my own record of previous years. It really feels so weird not to hear them yet, nor crickets by night.
Anyway, I had a great book week, so here we go:
