OK, so the literary world is full of the adventures of intrepid souls who live their lives in foreign countries and then write a book about it. And aren't we grateful for it! Susam Loomis does a lovely job of sharing the trials and tribulations of buying and renovating her home in France, and even her occasional cooking mishaps are enjoyable.

What I enjoy about this book is that Susan has a young child, and this offers a slightly different perspective to other books in this genre (Peter Mayle's "A Year in Provence" being the most memorable). As well we have the usual recipes, all sounding delicious, and the day to day amsements and disasters that beset her, all adding up to an enchanting book.
