Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
"This is a wonderful debut memoir, made much more appealing because it is true. A well written, fast-paced book enhanced by sprinkles of French..."

Most lies are told with the expectation that no one will uncover them. When I was twenty-one I told a monumental lie, fully aware mine would be discovered.

My Story as An American Au Pair in the Loire Valley, the first of two books in the French Illusions series, is based on the author's diaries from the summer of 1979. Linda Kovic contracts to become an au pair for an aristocratic French family in the Loire Valley. In order to secure the position, she pretends to speak the language, confident she'll be forgiven once she arrives at her destination. This book captures Linda's fascinating real-life story inside and outside the Château de Montclair. Her compelling memoir details her challenges and triumphs as she tries to adjust to her new life with Madame and Monsieur Dubois and their children. When Linda encounters, Adam, a handsome young student, her life with the family becomes more complicated, adding fuel to her internal battle for independence. Join Linda on her unforgettable adventure of discovery and romance in an extraordinary part of the world.
