Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Womans Europe explores the romantic and exhilarating continent of Europe (including the British Isles and Scandinavia) from a womans point of view. Women now represent the majority of leisure travelers and they are hungry for guidance from others who share their interests. They have always been drawn to Europe, whether to Italys sensuous landscapes and breathtaking art, to Frances romantic Riviera or effervescent Paris, to the deep spirituality of Celtic sites in Ireland and England or Goddess sites in Greece. The layers of history here resonate with womens sensibilities, and the stories in this book bring this history to life through exploration of places that have hardly changed in centuries or carry clues to the past in their modern profiles, and encounters with people who maintain proud traditions while enjoying a vibrant modern life. Europeans in general are better than Americans at making time for lifes finer points, and the women in this collection show that they, too, know how to discover and appreciate the good life.

Synopsis:

A Woman's Europe is a collection of inspiring and entertaining true stories by women about their travels throughout the Continent. Europe has always drawn Americans in part because so many of their ancestors emigrated from there. But Europe also has an irresistibly romantic appeal. It's a place of old-world elegance, with centuries of history, rich art and architecture. It is this romantic ideal that pulls more travelers to Europe than Asia or elsewhere, and that 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.
