Buying a Piece of Paris – finding a key to the city of love
Paris has so seduced Australian Ellie Nielsen that she can only be satisfied by buying her own little piece of the city she loves. The trouble is, she has only two weeks to realise her fantasy. So with her two years at Alliance Francaise in Melbourne behind her and her husband and six year old son, Ellie embarks on her adventure of a lifetime.
Buying a Piece of Paris is an easy to read, witty account of Ellie's experiences with the most beautiful and romantic city in the world, the unique traits of French real estate agents and the ever too frequent red-tape bureaucracy. She has all the passion required and slowly learns what is involved by trial and error but will she succeed in her quest...? Many of the obstacles Ellie faced rang true with our experiences – it is nice to know these things don’t just happen to us! She also conjures up many vivid images of Paris that everyone will relate to.
