Summary

The title says it all: what we have and where we are. This travel memoir, the sequel to Glass Half Full: Our Australian Adventure, follows our French exploits as we endeavor to rebuild our lives in another new country, after spending four and half years in Australia. Our goal, or hope for the immediate future, is to focus positively on the present so that we can start a new, optimistic future back in Europe. Our main aim is to be nearer to the children, leaving the dark clouds of the challenges we faced in Australia as a distant memory. Journey with us as we arrive in rural South West France; enjoy my reflections, thoughts, and observations about my family, our new surroundings, and our lifestyle. Follow the journey of my writing career and how we start our renovation project while managing our convoluted family life. Once again, we will laugh, cry, and enjoy life to the fullest with a generous helping of positive spin thrown in for good measure.

2 dogs and a suitcase

Dreary story and voice. Could have added a bit of poetic license to beef it up. Too many 'howevers'.

I really enjoyed this book.

I have never listened to an audio book that I could hear the narrator taking breaths. I tried putting the speakers farther away and turning it up but that made it worse. I won't listen to any more books narrated by this woman. But if Sara Jane has more books available on the audio format with another narrator I will jump at the chance to buy them.
