Summary

How the City of Lights gave her lessons in life and love: an Australian beauty journalist shares her obsession with Paris - a city which has been her guide through a lifelong journey of self-discovery.

Katrina Lawrence first fell in love with Paris at the age of five, and since then her roads have continually led her back to this most beautiful city, the City of Lights. Telling us the story of why Paris continually fascinates her, Katrina also gives us a mesmerising journey around Paris' most spectacular sights and most beguiling nooks and crannies as well as a profound musing on Paris and its people - from feminism to femininity, politics to perfume and, of course, those stylish Parisiennes who captivate us, from Catherine de Medici and Coco Chanel to Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve, making Paris Dreaming the ultimate chic, personal and charming memoir.

Studded with fascinating anecdotes and intriguing tidbits of trivia, Katrina shares the lessons Paris has taught her: everything from her favourite cafes and how to pick the perfect red lipstick to how to eat for pleasure. Written and narrated with warmth, gaiety, elegance and very real insight, Paris Dreaming is an audiobook not just for women who love Paris but for anyone in search of that elusive good life.

Brilliant!

The author’s own story entwined with so much interesting history of Paris was brilliant, never dull or uninteresting. The narrator was excellent, setting a good reading pace. I shall definitely listen to this audible book again and relive my love of Paris too.

Sublimely enchanting

Beautifully interweaves Katrina's personal love affair with the city and a journey through its history via the sights, art, archtecture and characters of note. The narration is excellent and perfectly suited to the tone of the book. If you love Paris, you love life and you will love this book.

Fantastic book makes you want to pack for Paris!!

I have never reviewed any of the dozens of books I have listened to on audible but this one was special. If you ever been to Paris or ever dream to go this book will transport you there. The writer is sophisticated and insightful I hope she writes more books. Her descriptions are very vivid.
