I love to travel, especially with my children. Seeing new places together is always fun and introducing them to places I love is a personal thrill. I also treasure the memories we create together, and the camaraderie that we share, which can’t be duplicated at home. On our journeys, it’s us again...

The Nitty Gritty: Jennifer Coburn is a woman feeling the icy breath of the Grim Reaper down her back. The death of her father at the age of 19 introduced her to death far earlier than she would have liked. Though with his weed addiction and smoking habits I cannot fathom why she was not prepared...

This memoir/travelogue wasn’t nearly as enjoyable as I had hoped it would be. The book alternates in what I thought was a rather tedious and predictable style, going back in the past remembering her musician hippy father and again forwarding to the present. It was mostly boring and made me fall a...

Jennifer Coburn, you had me at "Paris." In the introduction to this engaging memoir, Jennifer remarks that she has "never heard anyone talk about Paris without sighing." I'm no exception. As a francophile and lover of memoir, I was delighted to receive an advance review copy. Jennifer was still in...

Well, I feel a little bit split... The idea of traveling around Europe with your daughter, to create memories that will be recorded in her memory in case you die young, is just simply great. I really enjoyed the whole story. I loved the characters because they felt very real. I liked that in the mi...

Oh how I loved this memoir. It starts out charming and fun and witty (Mother and 8 year old daughter take a trip to Paris) but soon you realize how much deeper this goes. Excellent rumination on being both a parent and someone else's daughter, and how that all intertwines. Vivid descriptions of t...

Should be required reading for every mother out there! An honest, tender hearted memoir, about how a daughter can show a mother how to really live! We'll Always Have Paris is the memoir of Jennifer and her daughter Katie and their adventures through Europe. They start with Paris but end up travel...

Well, got fooled by reviews AGAIN. I was under the impression this book would be about this mom/daughter relationship as they travel throughout Europe and Korea. It was a little, but not all of it. It's a memoir of their travels, of Coburn's relationship with her father, and the sights, sounds, ta...

This memoir was less enjoyable than I anticipated, mostly because the descriptions of travel felt so one-dimensional. "We'll Always Have Paris" is a mother/daughter memoir that has a great premise - the author wants to "pack her daughter's suitcase with memories" mostly because she (the mother) h...

I absolutely loved We'll Always Have Paris: A Mother/Daughter Memoir by Jennifer Coburn! Jennifer decides to create memories for her daughter and sets out on trips to Europe over the course of eight years with just the two of them. The first and last trips were to Paris with London, Rome, Spain,...
