France again, mais oui!

I am a sucker for an expat book. If someone buys a house in a little village, I have to read all about it. I'll never be French (no matter what I do) is my latest wander in France. Greenside, however, has picked Brittany in the north not the south of France. He went the first time with a girlfriend, who wanted to spend several months. His love affair with her didn't last, but his love of the village did.

You would think little more could be written about quirky villagers, the perils of buying a house, etc. Greenside adds his own flavour and the book is fresh. So if like me you do your travels from an armchair, check out I'll never be French.
