From France With Love : A Love Story with Baggage
After two failed marriages, she has sworn never to succumb to another man's charms. He is grief-stricken after the death of his wife of forty-odd years. So Nadine and Olivier are both unprepared when their friendship unexpectedly blossoms into love. Nadine is Australian born and bred, Olivier is very French; yet in spite of all their differences and defences, they find a precious intimacy they want to build on. But can their love survive a road trip around France when the dream holiday becomes a harrowing test of wills and cultural clashes? From France with Love is an endearing yet honest, fiery account of the bitter-sweet experience of finding love in mid-life. This romantic true tale proves that what matters is the journey, not the destination.
