From the publisher's website:

"If you could change your life, would you? For fans of THE ELEGANCE OF THE HEDGEHOG, the story of an ordinary woman and a chance in a million...

What would it take to change your life?

Jocelyne is 47. She lives in a small provincial French town, runs her own dressmaking shop, has been married to the same man for what seems like an eternity, has had two children and lives a very ordinary existence. In fact so ordinary that she is beginning to wonder what happened to her, to all those dreams she had when she was seventeen.

Then comes the chance to change her life completely - but should she? For when Jocelyne begins to look at her life and its small pleasures - her friendship with the twins who run the hairdresser next door, her weekends away, her sewing blog - she realises that maybe ordinary isn't so bad. Until the decision is taken out of her hands...

The List of my Desires is a wonderfully heart-warming novel about what we value in life and the search for happiness.

I read most of this while queuing to get into Versailles and finished on the way from Versailles to Chartres. Very enjoyable! Sad, poignant, charming. Very French, somehow, so perfect reading on this roadtrip around Northern France.

Released 2 yrs ago (7/10/2018 UTC) at Hôtel Ibis Chartres Centre Cathédrale in Chartres, Centre France


I left the book on the small bookshelf in the lobby. Enjoy!
