Product description

Review

'Engaging and honest, like its author, it is one of my favourite books of the year.'

(Tess Stimson)

'Ooh la la! A fabulous, funny French love story.'

(Fi Cotter Craig)

A tale of survival against the odds in the depths of the French countryside. How one woman left the glittering world of media to be with, of all things, a macho Frenchman. A mad decision? Find out for yourself in this addictive and fast-paced read.

(Helena Frith Powell, author of Love in a Warm Climate)

'I loved this book; its true story of how a chance encounter took Sam from despair to delight, and from hopelessness to happiness, made me keep on reading. We never know what is around the corner or how in our bleakest times happiness is often just in front of us. Apart from being a fabulous read, this book is inspiring, uplifting, funny and poignant by turns. Sam can really write; her descriptions of rural France - the colours, the scents, the food and the people - made me feel as if I was already there and made me want to decamp there immediately. It is true to say this book is a page turner; I became lost in it even though I had a hundred other things to do as it forced me to escape into the expat world of rural France and was very entertaining and uplifting. I can highly recommend it.'

(Marisa Peer)

I SO know what it's like to be in that place of darkness; to have everything and to lose it all. I think a lot of people are going to be able to relate to it, and without sounding cheesy, it's… inspirational stuff.

(Jasmine Lennard)

'This funny and incredibly honest account details Samantha's first year in a new country and how she just aobut coped with it all.'

(Natasha Harding The Sun)

'It's likely you already have an opinion about Samantha Brick, but rather than remind you who she is and what's she's said, I'm going to advise coming to this book with a completely open mind and trying to forget what you thought you knew. Head Over Heels In France is the true story of her transformation from successful TV exec to French housewife living in a tiny village in the Lot region of the country...it's an engaging, enjoyable read about love, laughter and living life the way you want to. C'est tres bien!'

(Claire Frost Fabulous Magazine (The Sun))

'... it is the picture of Brick spending all day in a dressing gown, unable even to wash her hair, which stays with me most strongly... I like and admire her.'

(Nick Curtis (Interviewer of the Year, 2012 Press Awards) London Evening Standard)

'A rather sweet - and brutally honest and often funny - love story.'

(Connexions France)

'Love or loathe her newspaper columns about the difficulties of being a beautiful woman, Samantha Brick writes amusingly and honestly.'

(Destination France)
