    5. I m just going to say straight up that I had to check a couple of times to see that The Church of Tango by Cherie Magnus was actually a memoir rather than fiction Some of the things that happened seemed so unbelievable but you know what they say about truth being strangerThe memoir begins with the death of Cherie s husband Her tenacity and her adventurous spirit afterward are amazing She visits Paris right away, renting a room from an older woman Madame indicated that I shouldn t make myself at [...]


    6. This memoir, which is much the brave and intelligent story of the author than a book about Tango, was surprisingly fine I am not interested in dance doing or watching and while I find the music of Tango sometimes compelling, the dance itself looks a bit silly and pretentious to me Cherie Magnus is quite clearly in love with all forms of dance, and particularly passionate and that is exactly the right word about Tango But again, that is not the theme of her memoir This is the story of a woman wh [...]

    13. This book drew me right in with astonishment over the author s bold choices I devoured page after page of her adventures in Paris, trying to understand how she went from a Los Angeles housewife a librarian suddenly widowed when her husband dies young, a mother of two grown sons to become an American expatriate in Buenos Aires, teaching tango in the embrace of a skilled milonguero, one of the white haired, elder male aficionados for whom tango is life itself.I knew from her photograph that she wa [...]


    14. My 2 sisters and I met Cherie Magnus and her partner Ruben in September 2009 when we took tango lessons from them during a week s vacation in Buenos Aires I was looking at Cherie s blog again recently to recommend hers and Ruben s tango lessons to some American friends traveling to Buenos Aires when I discovered that Cherie had returned to L.A recently I also discovered that she had published The Church of Tango, and I immediately bought it on my Kindle and read it straight through When my siste [...]

    16. This book is sad, steamy, full of hope, honest and heart warming.Cherie loses her husband and childhood sweetheart to cancer and life for her changes forever The first decision she makes is to head to Paris, alone, and learn French for a fortnight Something in Paris reawakens her heart and she learns to live again, but there are challenges to face Life throws many nasty shots her way, from cheating friends, love rats and her own health issues But Cherie is a fighter She finds tango and feeds off [...]


    17. Although I dance tango and know Buenos Aires well, I did not feel an initial pull to delve into this book because of the tagged subject matter, which may be slightly misleading I have not had a husband die and didn t feel I wanted to read about surviving that tragedy As it turns out, Church of Tango, begins after the death and Cherie goes on a whirlwind of recovery that left me astonished in places She certainly knows how to pick herself up and dust off.I loved reading about Paris but I found he [...]


    18. It s a well written book by a clearly sexy widow who oscillates between California, Paris, Mexico and Buenos Aires in pursuit of love and a home Along the way she discovers dancing, and through it she makes herself a life even if she lands up with a string of highly unsuitable lovers Perceptive when describing her lovers, but lacking in self analysis when talking about herself or her relationships with her children.Nonetheless, one really identifies with the author in her struggle to overcome he [...]


    19. Copy received from France Book Tours for an honest reviewI personally really love memoirs because I feel that they always have something to teach us Everyone can contribute a lesson from their life story I thought Cherie s The Church of Tango was a perfect example of this Her honesty was very humbly because she really bared her heart and soul in this memoir I also love her passion I ve seen the Tango danced many times and felt that the dance was a perfect metaphor for Cherie and her life It s a [...]


    20. A page turner by an adventurous and brave woman I had the pleasure of knowing Cherie in Buenos Aires and I loved sitting at her table in milongas, watching her dance or perform with Reuben It s amazing what I didn t know about her past life lives but have now learned thru her memoir I recommend her book to any woman or man who needs inspiration for how to transcend life love challenges Bravissimo, Cherie


    21. Gorgeous read.I thoroughly enjoyed every word of this book All the very honest descriptions of life, love, dance and death made a change from the many other books of this genre.It warmed the cockles.
