French Toast and Marmalade Dreams
by Juditha Elmsworth
Estelle Waiten, a sixty-something housewife from Topeka, Kansas, had dreamed for years about living in France. Thanks to an unfortunate wheat thresher accident involving Estelle’s late husband, Jess, she now has the money and the time to make her dreams come true.
Read as Estelle finds herself, and becomes fluent in the French she learned back in high school. Laugh at her misadventures with the Metro and bidets. This typical American housewife is soon in her element from Paris to Versailles. You’ll be rooting for her every step of the way – and wishing that you were in on the adventure!
Back in Topeka, Estelle’s children, Ima and Ben, wonder when their mother will come to her senses and return to her life in the Midwest. Little do they know that Estelle has found love...and a life worth living, in The City of Lights.
