There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However because this was a free book, I thought what the heck. My wife and I have traveled throughout all areas of your little stories which may seem cute and quaint the others are really interesting to us because we see truth in most of them
Given all of that, l am making very light recommendation for those who have experience with France. Otherwise, I would just recommend passing this by.
The disappointing thing is that there are really good posts in between, but at least I got to learn the fate of the little bird.
Mostly, however, too many loose ends.

Susie Kelly’s La vie en Rose is a collection of short blog like posts giving us a window into her life in rural France and is just right to dip in and out of when in need of cheering up. Even Susie’s frustrations with Carrefour supermarket over a non-functioning coffee maker are fun to read, though no doubt less fun to contend with.
Many of Susie’s experiences in rural France resonated with me as they often mirrored our own in rural Spain: the bureaucracy is the same, the rural people, the fiestas, the weather and even the wildlife were so similar as to be uncanny.
I love that Susie and hubby are pudding people and I will be trying the lavender and fromage blanc dessert one of these sunny days
Susie’s enthusiasm for France shines through the pages and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about her ‘vie’
The regular Bird and beastie visitations facinate me Susie clearly has an affinity with nature. Oct. 2008 left me reeling a bit but i could see the sense in trying to branch out in the beauty business while you have plenty of raw material! May 2009 i learnt a new system for planting Tomatoes!
Heck you even get a smattering of recipes in this lovely little book! What more can a girl want.
Oh, yes another in the series? Lol
This coming so soon after the lovely Sarariants, Baggypants & Elephants, i think Susies can rest on her Laurels for a couple of moths at least.
This collection of notes on the realities of life in la France Profonde, written with gentle humour, reveals the matters that the sunflower and lavender brigade gloss over: the dearth of rural doctors (and of rural bakers), the mischevious nature of wood stoves, the oddities of the inspection regime for septic tanks and the mysterious arrival of guinea fowl. Not to speak of the prevalence of nudity in the French health system.
Her love of rural France is clear....but not starry eyed. So when the urge to buy a cottage in France visits you, take this book in one hand, a glass of wine in the other and enjoy both.
