Part love letter to Languedoc, part travelogue, part coming-of-a-certain-age memoir, this feel good story invites you to join seventy-eight year-old Jan Trigg as she sets off to try life in southern France.
Accompanied by her patient husband, Gaz, her unreliable car, Mistress Soul, and the wilfully devious Sat Nav, Miles, Jan travels into all kinds of trouble.
Jan writes with wicked dead-pan humour about her faux-pas and her homesickness, and reflects movingly on the delights of the place she adopts, for a while, as her home. Her inner journey - brave, hilarious and life-affirming - runs in parallel to her travels.
Will Jan & Co decide to stay in France or will they return home?
