Description
The author of The Road from the Past—which some of us here at Daedalus would not visit France without—Ina Caro delves deeply into French history on her travels through the country with her husband, biographer Robert Caro. In this inventive, engaging travel book, Caro conducts readers on 25 one-day train trips that depart from Paris and transport us back through seven centuries. Caro doesn't just recount history, she animates it with her lush descriptions of architectural splendors and tales of court intrigue, whether taking us to Orléans to evoke the miraculous visions of Joan of Arc, to Versailles to describe the flamboyant achievements of Louis XIV, or to the Place de la Concorde to witness the beheading of Marie Antoinette.

"It is hard to imagine a more enchanting or more brilliantly conceived book. With Ina Caro as your guide, you will fall in love with French history. Ancient castles and cathedrals come to life through her marvelous stories; biographical gems capture the lives of memorable kings and queens. But most of all, you will fall in love with Ina Caro herself—with her infectious love of history, food and architecture, her husband and life itself."—Doris Kearns Goodwin
