Read full description of the books The Road from the Past: Traveling through History in France:The writer tries too hard to give every detail of what she has experienced and at times gets repetitive. The editor for this book should have done a better job and saved readers' time. While I did enjoy the background history of many of the places I have visited and come to love in France I would have enjoyed this book much more if there had been more pictures and illustrations to tie into the long descriptions of sights and a lot less text especially the end of chapter recounts of each sight she visited. The book is just too long and so dry in spots and even the most avid lover of French history and travel will find it hard to stay awake through this book. Maybe that is why she insisted on giving a recap at each chapter's end-- to remind the reader of the point she was trying to get across that we had already forgot by the time we labored through each chapter.
On the other hand the redeeming quality of the book is to give readers ideas regarding their next trip to France and plan it around train use and along a historic timeline as the author did if one wants to spend time in Paris yet see sights outside of Paris with an understanding of where all the churches, chateaux, and other noteable sights fit in to the history of France.
