I have to say that I am not an avid reader and usually after the first few pages of a book can't get into it and just put it down never to be opened again. However, I was asked if I would like to read `Head Over Heels in France Falling in Love in the Lot' and as I live in that area part time thought I would give it a try. What a brilliant; honest well-written warts and all, truly amazing book. I just could not put it down. How it is written made me feel I was there and involved in the story. Samantha's book made me cry and laugh in equal measure. There can be no more proof needed that it is possible to pick yourself up and start all over again when you feel you have reached rock bottom.
