My Good Life in France: In Pur­suit of the Ru­ral Dream Ja­nine Marsh, Michael O’mara, £9.99 From Bri­tish ex­pa­tri­ate Ja­nine Marsh comes the true story of how a trip to north­ern France ten years ago to pick up some cheap wine re­sulted in the un­ex­pected pur­chase of a run-down barn in a quiet cor­ner of Pas-de-calais. Ja­nine soon left her cor­po­rate job in Lon­don and re­turned to France with her hus­band to start liv­ing what they hoped would be the good life. But what en­sued was a roller­coaster ride, with highs and lows which made Ja­nine learn that there was much more to her new home than she could have imag­ined. Packed full of hu­mour and in­sight into the French way of life, this story will make you dream of a new life across the Chan­nel.
