When the newly married Gillian and Bill leave Britain for rural France, little could they imagine the adventures they will have: from expert house renovation to wily language-school owners, to becoming involved in village life. The pair embrace all that comes their way, especially Bill, whose eye for the French ladies becomes legendary.While the newly christened ‘Gilly-Anne’ makes her debut as an English teacher in a school at La Rochelle, Bill tackles their new investment: a
ruined house with no water or electricity. Fortunately, they are helped generously by their new neighbours. So many customs to discover, so much to
explore in their camping van before the couple finally succeed in making France their home.New author Gillian Broome has written about her experiences with whimsy and humour. For those who have sought a new life abroad or are dreaming about one, her book will be a source of inspiration—or laughter.
Gillian Broome was a primary teacher before marrying Bill and moving to France. Here she taught at a university. Living in France has opened her life to new interests. She now writes feature articles and is the guide to a local castle. She has two children and another two grandchildren, all living in Spain.
