A Book Suggestion - A Lady In France

If you're wondering what to read next, I have a suggestion:

Why you should read it

A Lady In France is a book about journey through many things: countries, cultures, faith, depression and other struggles. In the end there's hope, healing. 

You should read it, because of hope and encouragement. Also, if you like foreign countries and cultures, it's a great book! It's beautiful and capitative. A well written book! 


"At seventeen, Jennie Goutet has a dream that she will one day marry a French man and sets off to Avignon in search of him. Though her dream eludes her, she lives boldly-teaching in Asia, studying in Paris, working and traveling for an advertising firm in New York.
When God calls her, she answers reluctantly, and must first come to grips with depression, crippling loss, and addiction before being restored. Serendipity takes her by the hand as she marries her French husband, works with him in a humanitarian effort in East Africa, before settling down in France and building a family.
Told with honesty and strength, A Lady in France is a brave, heart- stopping story of love, grief, faith, depression, sunshine piercing the gray clouds-and hope that stays in your heart long after it's finished." Barnes & Noble
