Summary Say bonjour to a whole new way of life! Take one French widower, his two young children, and drop a former city girl from Chicago into a small town in southwestern France. Shake vigorously ... and voilá: a blended Franco-American family whose lives will all drastically change. Floating on a cloud of newlywed bliss, Samantha couldn't wait to move to France to begin her life with her new husband, Jean-Luc, and his kids. But almost from the moment the plane touches down, Samantha realizes that there are a lot of things about her new home--including flea-ridden cats, grumpy teenagers, and language barriers--that she hadn't counted on. Struggling to feel at home and wondering when exactly her French fairy tale is going to start, Samantha isn't sure if she really has what it takes to make it in la belle France. But when a second chance at life and love is on the line, giving up isn't an option. How to Make a French Family is the heartwarming and sometimes hilarious story of the culture clashes and faux pas that, in the end, add up to one happy family.
