Click buy: a French chateau. Condition: â€˜may require improvementâ€™â€¦It seemed like a good idea. Selling everything we owned. Just Mark and me, swapping our tiny, little, terraced London home â€“ and the heartbreak of not being able to start a family â€“ for an entire chateau in the middle of Franceâ€¦ Itâ€™s everyoneâ€™s dream. And now itâ€™s coming true for us.
As I use the rusty key to open the big, creaking wooden door of the tumbledown fairytale chateau thatâ€™s officially our new home, I wonder: what could possibly go wrong?Little do I know that the answer is going to beâ€¦ â€˜everythingâ€™. I donâ€™t speak nearly as much French as I should yet, but I feel like thereâ€™s no mistaking the villagersâ€™ hostility. Nor the look of shock on the builderâ€™s face when he sees the roof.
Can our marriage survive this adventure? With all the tumbling masonry, will we?As the French sun blazes overhead, one thingâ€™s for sure: itâ€™s going to be a year to rememberâ€¦Praise for The French Chateau Escapeâ€˜A touching story about finding the strength you didnâ€™t know you had.
