Hey ladies, I’m super excited to announce this newest read! After reading my last book Rhinestone Jesus, I was a little disappointed that I hadn’t told you gals about it first so we could read it together. So this time I thought I’d tell you well in advance. If you’re interested in joining me for a Read & Chat of this book, “Global Mom, eight countries, sixteen addresses, five languages, one family”, then let me know in the comments below. Don’t worry if you don’t have the book yet. Simply introduce yourself and let us know “you’re in!”. Then head over to Amazon or Audible (you can get it FREE) and get the book.
Once your book gets to you, start reading it and share your thoughts with The Tribe in the comments section of this Journal article. I’ll always respond. You should also comment on the other Tribe members’ comments. I can’t wait to start getting to know you better. This Read & Chat will be a great way for us to get to know each other better and share about how the book relates to our life.
Update 7/23/16: With each section I read of the book, I will provide a commentary here. I invite you to respond and dialogue with me in the comments below.
Le Chef, Le Garcon, Le Guy, and Yosemite Sam: My immediate thought as I read through the very first page, was that Melissa is an intensely detailed storyteller. She has a keen eye for details during the events in her life that she shares about and she wants her readers to experience the emotions, smells, and culture too. I love that she throws in the meaning of simple French words and phrases. I’m not only being guided into Melissa’s story but I’m being taken on a tour of France and being introduced to the people who call it home. Though we’ve only met her movers so far, it was a rich introduction that makes me excited to meet her family and friends. I can only imagine the descriptions she’ll use to illustrate them.
