Book Review: The Blue Satin Nightgown

The Blue Satin Nightgown
Seriously, there are a great many who are managing having lost a partner. This memoir is a fun read. It's not easy when your life's circumstances changes, suddenly, or not. What I enjoyed about this story, is that she didn't dwell on the caregiving. Karin leaps off into the void, with wings and bells, revisiting Paris.

What I found intriguing, is that hubby and I went to Paris for a holiday. He's been several times, as he loves the city. This was the case for Karin and her late husband. I love the stories of the city. It is an amazing city. It was a great read.

The Blue Satin Nightgown (Non-Fiction / Memoir)
Karin Crilly's new book offers a delightful recipe to inspire you to turn your dream into a reality. A widow at 78, Karin Crilly decided to fulfill a long-held, cherished dream to live in France. Without knowing the language, the culture, or anyone there, Karin embarked on a daring adventure on her own to reinvent herself, bring passion to her life, and make her dream come true. Her courageous story takes you on a remarkable journey where she discovers the French recipe for life that establishes herself as an Aixoise in the quaint village. You will be perplexes as Karin about the French men, but you will be treated to plenty of joy, laughter and mouth-watering French recipes.

Life changing events do tend to make us re-evaluate things and take our bucket lists more seriously. Sounds like a good book. Thanks for the review. :)

I like the spirit here. And yes I am a dementia caregiver and took my bride on our 50th to Paris for three weeks...:)

Sounds interesting. I just visited France last fall.

What a fun but bittersweet premise! We've been talking about this topic, wondering how my husband's father will cope when his wife dies soon. He's too old and infirm for a Paris jaunt, but I like to think that his future will be brighter than it is now.
