TRAVELERS' TALES

A WOMAN'S EUROPE:
True Stories

Editor: Marybeth Bond

A Woman's Europe is a collection of inspiring and entertaining true stories by women about their travels throughout the Continent. Europe also has an irresistibly romantic appeal. It's a place of old-world elegance, with centuries of history, rich art and architecture. This romantic ideal attracts more travellers to Europe than anywhere else and appeals to women in particular. These stories highlight women discovering peculiarly European pleasures - the romantic realities of a gondolier's life on a ride through the Venice canals; meeting a comforting Swiss matron when a village visit becomes lonely and confusing; the meaning behind rituals like picking olives or learning flamenco; and more.

Notable authors include Frances Mayes, Isabella Tree, Jan Morris, Laurie Gough, Stephanie Elizondo Griest, Linda Watanabe McFerrin, Michele Anna Jordan, Constance Hale, and many more.
