By Bodil Malmsten, translated by Frank Perry, abridged by Jill Waters.
Read by Eleanor BronAt the age of 55, the author decided to pack up and leave her native Sweden.
With no particular destination in mind, she drives south and finds herself on the northwest coast of France, in Finistere.
And so begins this wryly humorous love story about a place she chooses to make her home.
It is also a story about writers block, gardening, bureaucracy, roses, the French language and water.
