French Wedding Style Competition: Win a copy of Parisian Postcards Book

THE COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED – The winner is Louisa Stickel

Today I have the first ever competition to launch on French Wedding Style, the chance to win a copy of Parisian Postcards book by Dr. Loui Franke.  The book is an enchanting literary tour through Paris through the eyes of Loui, full of facts and information combined with insider knowledge of the city that she has adopted.

author loui frankeParisian Postcards was written by Loui Franke  who divides her time with her husband Stanley Coira,  between south Florida and Paris, France.  They are each retired from the world of medicine with Dr Coira receiving his degree in medicine from the Faculé de Médicine Cochin in Paris, France. Dr Franke received her degree from the University of Maryland.

Loui and Stanley did what many only dream of, which is to set up a residence in another country.  For several years, Dr. Franke wrote a blog of their experiences while living abroad.

The concept for her book, Parisian Postcards, was thus born and now offers the reader a collection of short stories on living in Paris, places to visit, historical background, travel tips and photos. Dr Franke is always on the lookout for locations to write about that are interesting and usually over-looked.   She calls them “snapshots” of their life in France.

  • Paris lives in my mind and heart as the place that I’ve always wanted to visit since I was a child. When I was 14 my Father brought me back a gift that he got on the Champs Elysees. That bottle of Shalimar made me feel like the most glamorous girl in the world. I will live the dream of my Paris visit someday.

  • Paris represents so many different things for me —- beauty; culinary joy and adventure; wonderful and varied promenades; a sense of freedom and awe with all the history and culture and art… I plan to emulate Loui, and find myself one day living part of the year in some adorable Pied a Terre. And, Loui’s charming book and I will stroll the Parisian ‘trottoirs’ hand in hand with joy in ‘our’ hearts!

  • My husband and I have been saving up with hopes of visiting your beautiful City of Lights (and love and culture and cuisine) for our 10th anniversary. Along with the usual, we look forward to strolling through the parks/gardens, sitting in cafes, enjoying your wine and getting to know the people.
