I read the entire book without putting it down. Ms. Marton, a
fascinating woman, wrote a loving tribute to her late husband in the
most poignant telling. Furthermore, she details her relationship with
her previous husband, and father of her children, the late Peter
Jennings. It's no wonder that both her husbands were quite taken with
her, admitted flaws and all. Enjoyed it immensely.

Very odd book by woman who cheats on 3 husbands, leaves her husband of 15 years, Peter Jennings, and children on the spur of the moment on Christmas to go on a 5 day road trip with the man who becomes her 3rd husband. Impossible to follow time line or figure out who cares for the Jenning children as she roams the world with Richard Holbrooke until he dies (also cheats on him). Boring and unsavory.

    I love Paris and I love this book! Kati Marton gives us an intimite and honest peek into her exciting life as a journalist, and her marriages to two very important and influential men - Peter Jennings and Richard Holbrooke. She touches on important historical events she witnessed and the powerful people she encounters along the way. She writes with humility and respect and reverence of others. She writes from her heart and it easily comes across in her gifted writing style. She is unpretentious and real. Kati Morton is someone you'd love to invite to coffee and hear more about her fascinating life! My book club is planning a "Paris Night" to celebrate the "City of Lights" and this fabulous book!!! I not only thoroughly enjoyed this book, but learned some history along the way! Highly HIGHLY recommended!!! THANK YOU KATI!!!!

    Wonderful Story

    This is a wonderful story, and also a very interesting memoir about well-known people. I read it because I have admired Richard Holbrooke for years and wanted to know more about his wife. I learned that she is a highly competent and interesting person in her own right.
