Champagne Widows | Rebecca Rosenberg
post image

While reading Paris by Edward Rutherfurd in my Paris readings, they mentioned this woman who owned a champagne house I remembered this was a book by an author that was featured at the #adventuresbythebook #Superbookthree event that I went to in San Diego in February. I‘m going to have to read this next it seems to be a very intriguing story. And she passed out champagne flavored jellybeans to us!

Paris: The Novel | Edward Rutherfurd

Continuing my Paris reading, alternating between the classic Baedeker‘s Paris travel guide, and the novel Paris, a saga spanning the years 1261 through 1968.
Bandette 🐶 loves to read with me as long as I keep her properly covered up under the blanket!

Chrissyreadit Hi!!! How are you? 2w
tpixie @Chrissyreadit doing great! Got to see my grandkids on Friday & Saturday, and today Im having a nice quiet day to myself. Best of both worlds! Hope you are doing well. And your daughter I met at the National Book Festival - I hope she is well. 2w
Chrissyreadit @tpixie that does sound like the best of both worlds- is your son still in Cali? My daughter is well! She‘s still modeling and living in LA I miss her so much! But we talk every day. 2w

tpixie @Chrissyreadit that‘s amazing about your daughter! Congrats! It is really far away but you‘re excited that they can chase their dreams. I have a sundown in San Diego vlogging poker blogs https://youtu.be/hGFv1uwydKQ my dancer was doing great until Covid hit and so he came back home took some classes and he‘s heading off to nursing school this fall He‘s in the Netflix movies The Prom and Christian summer camp musical A Week Away. 2w
Chrissyreadit @tpixie that poker blog was crazy- it‘s amazing at the opportunity social media provides! Does he love living there? Good for your other son on nursing school! Did he ever want to follow in your footsteps as a Dr? 2w
tpixie @Chrissyreadit yes loves San Diego. The weather is always great. Great zoo and ocean Adam did earlier, but now he‘s older, he wants a quicker schooling. 2w
Chrissyreadit I‘m interested in this book- I read Sarum about 30 years ago and loved it but I haven‘t read any chunksters since having kids 🤣 2w
tpixie @Chrissyreadit I hadn‘t heard about him, but then ran across this book. I‘m listening to the book but went to the library to get the physical book for the family tree, and saw his others. Sometime I‘d like to invest some time reading those. He does a good job integrating history with the book characters. They are chunksters!! 2w

Paris: The Novel | Edward Rutherfurd
post image

This saga brings life to Paris from the 1200‘s to the 1800‘s through the eyes of 6 families. The story is compelling and so is the history.
It reminds me of Ken‘s Follet‘s Kingsbridge Trilogy, beginning with The Pillars of the Earth 👇
#Paris 🇫🇷

tpixie He‘s also written sagas about China, London, Ireland, Russia, The New Forest (which we read about with #ChildrensClassicRead2021), & Sarum- about English history from its beginnings in the Ice Age to present day. (edited) 3w

I‘m continuing my submersion in all things Paris. This is a memoir that has a very strong sense of place. It‘s based in the 9th Arrondissement. ( her home in ?), not far from Sacre Coeur ?. I circled Ile de la Cité & Ile Saint-Louis ? for reference. #Paris

Both books describe Hemingway‘s early years in Paris. The Paris Wife is from Hadley‘s view & A Moveable Feast from Ernest‘s view.
Reading TWICE how Hadley LOST ALL of his manuscripts was TWICE as heartbreaking. They must have been thrown away, since there was no money 💰 in the valise. Could you imagine if the manuscripts were found, what they would be worth now?

I heard about this book on the Strong Sense of Place Podcast- which I learned about on the podcast What Should I Read Next. I think it will fit in nicely to my 🇫🇷 Paris-themed reading.

We had a wonderful get together w. the 93 yo author. She‘s American born German descent. She & family in East Germany were 1st displaced by Russia during & then Poland after WWII. As a teen, she survived Russian work camps, displaced persons camps, & ocean voyage to America. Finally after 7 years, her Mom & brother joined her in KS. Her strength, joy, & gratitude should never be forgotten.

tpixie @Chrissyreadit @Cortg @AmyG it was amazing. And her story is different than what I‘ve heard, being a German displaced by Russia! They were Christians, & not Nazi sympathizers, but imprisoned by Russia. Then as reparations, Poland got Eastern part of Germany, so they got kicked out of their home again. Unfortunately they ended up in Russian Occupied Germany (not US, British, or France Occupied), so they were prisoners again! Then her mom helped her 3mo
tpixie Escape to American occupied Berlin. There it was discovered she was actually Americsn born (her parents were in Kansas from 1922 to 29) & so at 18 yo, she was able to come to USA. Her mother & brother, Germans, were allowed 7 years later. Dad never seen after being taken away by Russians in WWII. WE had a very insightful lunch with her! 3mo

She was American born of German parents. They got displaced from their family farm in Germany during World War II by the Russians. After World War II they got displaced again by Poland and were sent to Russia Occupied Berlin. Once it was discovered that she was actually a US citizen, she was able to come to America!

EvieBee You‘re a brave soul! I eat everything BUT I have this weird mayonnaise phobia. 🤣 6mo
tpixie @EvieBee lol 😂 well I‘m kind of worried about the raw egg I‘m not certain if I‘ll be able to make it. But I love Hellmann‘s! 6mo

My #LastBook is going to be My Life In France about Julia Child. I‘m reading this because I learned from a post of @EvieBee there‘s a new movie coming out about Julia Child.
My #FirstBook will be Monsieur Mediocre by John Von Sothen on my Kindle & The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict on audio for my IRL bookclub

#LastFirst
