THE LITTLE BRETON BISTRO by Nina George, Hachette.
Fans of The Little Paris Bookshop are likely to be equally charmed by Nina George’s latest adventure. It’s the story of German woman Marianne, who seizes an opportunity to escape from her 40-year loveless marriage to controlling Lothar. Determined to end it all, she throws herself into the River Seine in Paris, only to be rescued by a homeless man who witnesses her leap. Reluctantly still alive, and alone because Lothar has returned to Germany, she finds herself drawn to a village by the sea in Brittany. At the Ar Mor bistro she discovers a new way to live and, cautiously, love… but does she have the courage to do so or will Lothar lure her back? A whimsical romp for romantics and dreamers.
