Janine eventually gave up her job in London to move with her husband to live the good life in France.

Overall, this was a fun memoir and it helped me satisfy the need to go somewhere else while staying home the whole day.

While there are plenty of books about France, most of them are about the big city and/or not so interesting. The book is not deeply philosophical and not in the self-improvement genre, but there were a few nuggets for reflection. She was fascinated by my story, about giving up corporate life for love, living in the country with more than 60 animals, and starting a blog. I already had my house of horrors in rural France which was meant to be a holiday home but I stopped visiting because I was working almost non-stop.

We’re loving a new YouTube Channel created by a young couple from New Zealand who are doing just that.She gave up a sensible job in London, where she was born, to renovate a bargain basement barn and turn it into a home – an ongoing project.

While getting to grips with the locals and la vie Francaise, and renovating her dilapidated new house, a building lacking the comforts of mains drainage, heating or proper rooms, and with little money and less of a clue, she started to realize there was lot more to her new home than she could ever have imagined.

I think what shines through is that she is one of those rare people who can entirely uproot a life, leave behind the corporate dream and still make a tremendous success professionally as well as in creating a peaceful lifestyle.

Along the way she became maid to six cats, three dogs, fifty chickens and ducks, and four mad geese.Dordogne, Provence, French Riviera, Alsace, Picardy, Charente-Maritime – pretty much wherever I go it’s my new favourite place but if I have to really pick one place, it would be Paris. Overall, I would stress that kindness and consideration for others goes a long way anywhere and everywhere. I love my books, I have more than 4,000 and had to renovate the pig sty so I had somewhere to keep them all. Author Janine Marsh shares her charming journey to the good life dream--including the bon and not-so-bon things to consider!
