“It is wonderful—touching, romantic, and honest—and oh, how it made me want to go to Paris!” Barbara Walters, television journalist and New York Times bestselling author
“A great read—the lightness of love, the drama of war and sudden death—with Paris in the background.” Diane von Furstenberg
“Marton offers an intimate look at her adventurous life in a book that is part romance, part travelogue, and part memoir of journalism and diplomacy.” Booklist
“Paris provides a backdrop for this absorbing memoir of love and painful loss, played out on the larger stage of world politics…On a first-name basis with the political movers and shakers on a global stage, Marton has observed world politics in the making and makes space for readers on her catbird seat.”  Kirkus Reviews
“Kathe Mazur’s narration is characterized by a sincere tone and slow pace in this memoir…The book’s many French words and names are no challenge for Mazur as she zips through them without hesitation, lending authenticity to the production.” AudioFile
