Ma Folie Franca̧ise
(my French Folly) / Marisa RaoulBook - 2008
Marisa Raoul has travelled with her European parents, worked as a flight attendant for an international airline and moved house more than once. She isn't one to be perturbed by new challenges or foreign destinations. However, when she falls in love with a Frenchman, Jean, and they decide to take up residence in a quiet, south-western corner of France, life turns out to be an exciting adventure - so bizarre and such a 'folie'. In her delightful memoir she takes us to the heart of her 'medieval' Bed and Breakfast, with incidents full of Gallic humour and eccentricity. A quiet 'tree-change' turns outs to be a hilarious, surprising and romantic romp, which lasts a decade. Ma Folie Francaise is a book for anyone who has ever wanted to fall in love with a foreign country. Charming, passionate and inspired, it will make you want to follow your dreams, pack up your life, and shift to France.
