MY LIFE IN FRANCE opens in 1948 with a newly married Julia Child seeing Le Havre, France, for the first time. Relying on detailed letters her husband sent to his twin brother, Julia shares anecdotes of food and wine, new marriage, and life in Paris and at the Cordon Bleu. The book moves through Julia's collaboration on the seminal MASTERING THE ART OF FRENCH COOKING and her experiences with her PBS cooking show, "The French Chef." While Kimberly Farr's voice is a bit too smooth to accurately portray Child's highly recognizable and energetic style, she handles the many French terms with grace, and the overall effect is enjoyable.
