"[Sanderson's] prose is infectious, and even when things are dire for her character, they're a delight for the reader."
“A digital-age fairytale in Paris. Petite Anglaise is light, frank and tremendous fun… Like all good writers, her work simply enables us to appreciate the diversity, possibilities, trials, and beauty of life.”
"Written with the same panache as her popular blog...Petite Anglaise offers a fresh twist on the classic story of reinvention abroad."
“Magnificent … Sanderson has a novelist’s gift for capturing certain eternal situations.”
“A wonderful read.”
"Readers will be taken by Sanderson's poignant, honest portrait of everyday life [in Paris]...Reading such intimate details can seem voyeuristic but they also make the book hard to put down."
"Her seamless, dramatically paced narrative reads beautifully, and her ear for dialogue is excellent. Evocative descriptions of Paris are an added plus."
“A winner…Written with breathtaking candor … it’s the story of a love affair—not so much with Mr. Frog, their adorable blonde daughter Tadpole, or even her elusive lover James, but with Paris itself … Like Peter Mayle, she brings France to life on the page.”
“Petite Anglaise describes daily life in Paris to a T, interspersing bittersweet domestic scenes with an amusing picture of French manners.”
