All Carol's books have contained, what seemed to me to be, a very honest opening of her heart. She relates incidents that I would baulk at sharing with the world.
Too many books have been written about the foreign 'rural idyll', where disasters are turned into quirky, funny tales and the locals are curious but loveable characters. As someone who lives in Italy, I know the difficulties and downright slog involved in living in another culture. Carol shows that there are considerable downsides with creating a life overseas, showing a far more realistic way of living than is provided by the likes of Peter Mayle.
of Brits making the lifestyle change to living in a foreign country.
I have read 2 of the earlier books by Carol Drinkwater. Her style of writting
is most informative and imaginative.
One feels involved in her life story and I hope all goes well for her and Michel.
I will most certainley read any subsequent books on the same theme.
