My Review:

What a stunning escape. Trapped in a mundane life, Lily has just been made redundant, a feeling I remember well myself, which helped me connect to the story instantly. With a wish to move to France and a sweet redundancy package she is 100% sure that Ben would finally move to France with her. Drunk or high on life she buys a Farm House in the Hamlet off Creuse on Ebay. Emily her best friend supports her rather impulsive adventure.
Loved every page. 5Stars all the way.

A Year at the French Farmhouse

Escape to France with this warm, witty romantic read.

After ten years of loyal service Daisy Butterworth has been made redundant. Like any clever woman, she knows the cure to redundancy is a little too much wine and her best friend.

Only the next morning, Daisy has more than a hangover . . . she has a whole new house – in France!

Seeing this as an opportunity instead of a disaster, she’s excited about finally moving to France, just as she and her husband always dreamed of. However, Daisy is in for another surprise. Despite planning to move there for over 20 years, her husband never actually intended to go.

So begins a year in France, alone, renovating the gorgeous old farmhouse that is held together by wallpaper and wishes.

Will a year at the French farmhouse be just what Daisy needs? Or could it be the previous owner, Frederique, that is the answer to Daisy’s dreams?
