A wonderful Memoir - well narrated

Would you consider the audio edition of From Tours to Paris to be better than the print version?

I thoroughly enjoyed this audio version.

What did you like best about this story?

I was eager to read/listen to this memoir - Part 2 of the Author's time in France. I loved Book 1 and wasn't disappointed with the continuation of Linda's life once she had left the employ of the Dubois family. Still determined to learn the language she 'gets to grips' with it very well in my humble opinion. We get to know her friends, the cafes she frequents, some of the beautiful scenery and, there are a couple of love interests! Money is a struggle but she does have the help of her parents - especially when she decides to speak to them about remaining in France for a while longer. All in all a lovely Memoir of a time past - a young woman on a big adventure. I loved this audio version - it was so well narrated and if I'm honest made a nice change.
