Summary
A language barrier is no match for love. New Yorker journalist Lauren Collins discovers this first-hand when, in her early 30s, she moves to London and falls for Olivier, a Frenchman. As their relationship begins to grow, Lauren senses that there are things she doesn't understand about Olivier, having never spoken to him in his mother tongue. Soon, she finds herself adrift in French-speaking Geneva and embarks on learning French in her new surroundings while reflecting on her lifelong love affair with language and her own linguistic roots
