Lessons in French by Hilary Reyl
What budding artist wouldn't grab the chance to work in Paris with the world-famous photojournalist Lydia Schell? For Katherine, who just finished Yale, it will also be like going home, having lived in Paris as a young girl when her father was dying from cancer. Back then, she stayed with cousins and their son in a poor part of the city. Remembering that time, including her cousin Etienne's cruelty to her, still hurt, but they aren't going to get in the way of making new ones. This time Kate will be renting a room in the Schell's house, located in one of Paris' most classy neighborhoods. So what if Kate doesn't know how difficult Lydia is, or what she'll be doing for her? How hard could it be for a Yale graduate with unaccented and fluent French in the city of every artist's dreams? Furthermore, the Berlin Wall is about to come down, so this is the perfect time to work with a photojournalist.
