    French livingI enjoyed this book The writer provided great descriptions of renovating, daily life, food, customs, and local people A good read for anyone who would enjoy living in the French countryside, or dreaming of doing so I wish I could I appreciate the writer sharing her experiences.

    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 whole time I would also have liked some photographs included as descriptions of their renovations left me wanting picture evidence, or maybe I m just nosy I was pleased when the mentions of Murphy their Westie reassured me that the behaviour of my own Westie is probably down to his breed rather than his own sometimes volatile idiosyncrasies, and I would love to have seen a photo of the little chap.Overall they came across as a delightful couple with an interesting story to share and I enjoyed reading it very much.

    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 moments , but the book is written with a quiet humour and a good eye for character It gives a good idea of the local atmosphere and of the problems you encounter when you turn up in a foreign land don t speak the language However, it shows that despite the pitfalls, if you re the sort that just gets on with things, you can make a good fist of it.

    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 recommend this book to people looking for some light reading but don t look on it as a guide to living in France.
