Description

How her daughter and her passport taught Jennifer to live like there's no tomorrow

Jennifer Coburn has always been terrified of dying young. So she decides to save up and drop everything to travel with her daughter, Katie, on a whirlwind European adventure before it's too late. Even though her husband can't join them, even though she's nervous about the journey, and even though she's perfectly healthy, Jennifer is determined to jam her daughter's mental photo album with memories—just in case.

From the cafés of Paris to the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Jennifer and Katie take on Europe one city at a time, united by their desire to see the world and spend precious time together. In this heartwarming generational love story, Jennifer reveals how their adventures helped vanquish her fear of dying...for the sake of living.

We'll Always Have Paris is a tale of laughter, tears, and the joys of self-discovery. Jennifer's raw and honest reflections will resonate with readers of all backgrounds, as she delves into the complexities of motherhood, the pursuit of dreams, and the art of letting go. 

Packed with emotion, wit, and unforgettable moments, this memoir is a celebration of life's imperfections and the enduring strength of family bonds.

"Brimming with joie de vivre!"—Jamie Cat Callan, author of Ooh La La! French Women's Secrets to Feeling Beautiful Every Day

"Coburn proves as adept at describing the terrain of the human heart as she is the gardens of Alcázar or the streets of Paris."—Claire and Mia Fontaine, authors of the bestselling Come Back and Have Mother, Will Travel

        Starred review from May 1, 2014

        After a family tragedy leaves novelist (The Wife of Reilly) and columnist (salon.com, Huffington Post) Coburn terrified of death, she resolves to make as many happy memories with her daughter, Katie, as possible. Coburn plans a European adventure that over the course of several years takes them to beautiful places such as Spain, Italy, and, of course, Paris. From one amazing adventure to another, as she and Katie explore what the world has to offer, Coburn learns the most important life lesson of all: to appreciate every precious moment with the ones you love. Part travelog and part touching memoir, this book is perfect for readers who enjoyed Judith Fein's Life Is a Trip; Jennifer Baggett and others' The Lost Girls; or any of the volumes in the "Best Women's Travel Writing" series. VERDICT A book for all readers, but especially mothers and daughters, this fun, inspiring, and spirited journey will have you scrambling for your passport and calling your mom just to say, "I love you."--Melissa Culbertson, Homewood, IL
