Seven Letters from Paris: A Memoir

Seven Letters from Paris is American Samantha Vérant’s memoir of rekindling a romance with a Frenchman she met 20 years earlier while traveling. The premise is romantic—that the spark of true love can remain for many years, and it gives hope to readers that are down on their luck or struggling in bad relationships. Although the memoir is written as a narrative, and Vérant gives a lot of description and details (sometimes too much of both), the book lacks a certain literary quality. It was interesting to read her story, and I stuck with it because of my love for Paris and obvious desire to marry a Frenchman and move to France, but I never felt captivated by the writing.
