Musician DAN JONES abandons a stable career in South Wales for family life in a sleepy French village.

This book has a great deal of entertainment value but is let down by poor editing. Much of what has been written could have been condensed, or concatenated or simply structured in a less haphazard way. Additionally, if photos are required (a debatable point), then they should be of a high quality and a size in which the salient features are distinguishable. I would enjoy the book much more if it could be made to be less obviously self-published.

"un coup de cœur"

Lovely book about a family successfully integrating into a new community in rural France. I particularly enjoyed the humour and frustrations felt when dealing with the strange bureaucracy and the wonderful friendships and connections made when you choose to "dive" into life.
