Linda Kovic-Skow

Author Linda Kovic-Skowabout this book: In the summer of 1979, when I was twenty-one and working as a medical assistant, I wanted a career change. My resume landed me an interview with World Airways, but they required all of their flight attendants to speak a second language, so I contracted to become an au pair for a wealthy French family. Is there a catch? Yes. To secure the position, I pretended to speak the language...fully aware that my lie would be discovered once I arrived at my destination. Did this cause any problems? You bet. Based on my diary, my memoir recounts my real-life adventure in France, inside and outside the Château de Montclair.

"The book (French Illusions: My Story as an American Au Pair in the Loire Valley) is an honest account of the author's life and her dreams to travel the world. The book is insightful and it captures the beauty of the Loire Valley." -Mamta Madhavan, Readers' Favorite Book Review and Award Contest
