“The Good Life in France”
Jennie and her actor husband Conrad form part of a wave of enterprising Brits who, in the 1980’s and 1990’s, buy up property in France, restore it, and live the good life. In their case, it’s an old barn which they fall in love with. Although a beautiful and robust building, it presents them with enormous challenges as they struggle to make it into a home while at the same time retaining its unique character.
The couple are welcomed with open arms into both French and English communities, but cultural and linguistic differences give rise to many humorous happenings which Jennie’s sharp eye and delicious turn of phrase record in detail.

The two expats are born survivors, rising above ill health and even escaping virtually unscathed from the Lothar Storm of December 1999. They take everything in their stride until one dark night a road accident undermines their confidence in their chosen country. Will they retire defeated or will they battle through to recreate their dream?
This is a book which makes you feel a part of the author’s life as she embraces her surroundings, including the primitive lifestyle which the building project necessitates in its early stages. The text is embellished by colour photographs.
