Summary
Renowned journalist Nadine Williams is heartbroken, following the untimely death of her French-born husband, Olivier. Long-time friend Jane, alarmed at Nadine?s despair, suggests a return to France to restore her joie de vivre. Their journey from Barcelona to Paris is peppered with hilarious battles about food, fashion and French culture, which challenge their friendship. But slowly the fun of travelling together in the glorious Loire Valley, Provence and Paris begins to lift Nadine?s sadness. Alone again, Paris spins magical happenings in Nadine?s life. She steps into le quartier Latin and enters the exciting worlds of independent French women, both past and present. When she meets a French man who resembles Olivier, she faces a conundrum. Does she want another man to share her future? Or will she define herself as a widow and allow her former life of love and marriage to fall away? Finally, she reflects that suffering loss is the legacy of her love story and fond memories will help heal her heart
Summary
Nadine Williams is heart-broken following the untimely death of her French-born husband, Olivier. Long-time friend Jane, alarmed at Nadine's despair, suggests a return to Europe to restore her joie de vivre: ending in Paris where Nadine's love for Oliver was borne. Their journey from Barcelona to Paris is peppered with hilarious battles about food, fashion and politics, which challenge their friendship. But slowly the fun of travelling together in the glorious Loire Valley, Provence and Paris takes over. And when, alone now in Paris, Nadine meets a French man who resembles Olivier, she is confronted by her grief once more as well as a conundrum: does she want another man to share her future or does she now prefer her freedom? Finally, Nadine begins to recover and to redefine herself as a widow and realises that loss is the legacy of women, as gratitude for memories replaces grief in her heart.
