I was very lucky to receive this book free from Goodreads This is the true story of Irish couple Heather and Ronnie as they settle into their new life in a village in France.The reasons given for this upheaval were illness, stress and marital separation but it would seem that no sooner had they found the Old Presbytery than their life became perfect, either that or the story was somewhat sanitised for the readers benefit As it stands the story is of an idyllic life with the odd minor and usually comic mishap thrown in.Having said that it was a thoroughly enjoyable and informative read and would make the perfect holiday novel, especially if you happen to be holidaying in France.For myself I found it a little too Darling Buds of May style of perfect and I would have liked to hear how marital relations suffered when they were forced to both live and work together 24 7 or maybe I m just an old cynic and they got along marvellously the
Written with a warmth and lightness that makes it a delightful read, the book takes you into the new world that Heather Francis and her husband build around themselves in deepest France.Clearly a kind and friendly person though do I detect a rather stand offish husband in the background , the author strives to make friends and to fit in with the village, and the book follows her successes and failures It s slightly over peppered with clich s and I m not sure where the laughter mentioned in the title comes in which means the reader shouldn t expect a lot of laugh aloud m
l received this book as a prize from GoodReads FirstreadsAs l lived in France for eighteen months l was really looking forward to reading this book lt was an enjoyable read on the whole, marred occasionally by mistakes in French l would recom
