Summary

Continuation of the memoirs of an Australian woman who set up a new life in France with her two children after losing her husband to cancer. Documents her unorthodox life - loves, business, daily living, children becoming teenagers, tricky pets, negotiating French culture in the small village in the south of France where she has made her home. She earns a living via short-term lets of the three holiday homes she has bought, and we track various vicissitudes related to the business such as quirky tenants, the impact of SARS, the yearly cycle, the struggle to achieve pristine white sheets, and renovations. On a personal level, she has romantic conflicts to sort through, and she forms a great friendship with a strong local woman.
