Book cover Paris, Part Time by Lisa Baker Morgan

In 2008, Lisa Baker Morgan, a thirty-eight-year-old, newly divorced mother, unexpectedly found herself staring down death in a Monaco hospital. She was nine time zones away from her two young daughters in Los Angeles.

After facing mortality and surviving, her life took on a sense of urgency to experience and accomplish all of the things she had ever wanted for herself and her daughters. Top of her list: a lifelong desire to live in Paris.

The seemingly indulgent and even “crazy” aspiration was part of a journey that set her on the path of recovery of health and of spirit. Paris, Part Time is a different kind of love story. It’s an adventurous evolution of self-creation. About determination to overcome obstacles and time zones that will take the reader to the streets, cuisine, culture, and matchless beauty of France.

From lessons of impermanence to finding the joie de vivre, Paris, Part Time showcases the vulnerability and strength of the human spirit and motherhood. And it reveals our desire to transcend setbacks and live our best life, however we define it, whatever our circumstances.

Relatable in sentiment, heart-felt, and humorous, Paris, Part Time bounds with the optimism of infinite possibility and gratitude for life itself. Twenty-five recipes and over forty pages of photographs reflecting the author’s journey and experiences in France are included.
