I first wanted to read this book because I, too, have ALWAYS wanted to go to Paris. However, when I realized the author was using Paris as a metaphor I became intrigued. This book focuses on how to navigate the tension of living a life that is filled with joy - whether you physically stay right where you are or make it to Paris tomorrow. The author shares parts of her personal story (she is very transparent), as well as the spiritual growth and discoveries she has made along the way.
Each chapter includes a section titled "Unearthing Your Longings" (thought provoking questions with supporting Scripture, so you can dig a little further.) There is also an "An Invitation to Paris!" section - specific activity instructions for a local or Parisian-like activity!
This is one of the best "Christian Life" books I've read in a while and it is very easy to recommend. You will both find it helpful and inspiring, as well as practical for your every day life.
I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
