Without Reservations by Alice Steinbach
Book Description"In many ways, I was an independent woman," writes Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Alice Steinbach. For years I d made my own choices, paid my own bills, shoveled my own snow. But somehow she had become dependent in quite another way. I had fallen into the habit of defining myself in terms of who I was to other people and what they expected of me. But who was she away from the people and things that defined her? In this exquisite book, Steinbach searches for the answer to this question in some of the most beautiful and exciting places in the world: Paris, where she finds a soul mate; Oxford, where she takes a course on the English village; Milan, where she befriends a young woman about to be married. Beautifully illustrated with postcards from Steinbach s journeys, this revealing and witty book transports you into a fascinating inner and outer journey, an unforgettable voyage of discovery. Praise for "Without Reservations: " A rich account of one woman s journey through Europe and into the self. " Us Weekly" I loved going along with Alice Steinbach as she goes off on this rare, wonderful adventure, an escape into discovering herself and some of the truly magical places in this world. DOMINICK DUNNE More than a chronicle of the writer s search for self-discovery, "Without Reservations "is a lovely travelogue. " Chicago Tribune " The best books, like the best vacations, contain unexpected delights, surprises that enrich the soul as well as the senses. This is a book about love, and longing, and the passage of time. It s about hope, and courage, and the resiliency of memory. This book is a feast. "Bon appetit!" " The Des Moines Register " Beautifully written, clear, insightful, thoughtful . . . Steinbach s book should be taken in slowly and savored all the way. " St. Petersburg Times""
