Tout Sweet hanging up my high heels for a new life in France
In her mid-thirties Karen has it all: a career as a national-press fashion editor, a handsome boyfriend, a fab flat in west London and an array of the most gorgeous shoes. But when her 'plus one' leaves, she wonders if there is more to life.
So she hangs up her Manolos and waves goodbye to her city lifestyle, deciding to go it alone in a run-down house in rural Poitou-Charentes, western France. There she encounters a host of new friends and unsuitable suitors , soon learning that true happiness can be found in the simplest of things – a bike ride throught he countryside on a summer evening, or six glasses of wine in a neighbour's garden!
