"A book to inspire" Good Housekeeping Magazine

Hilarious true story of English eccentricity, the Texan pioneering spirit & 2 women old enough to know better

At the age of 50+, Susie treks across France... ... 500 miles from the West to the East, all alone, with her tent on her back.

She hands over her French farmhouse full of assorted animals to a total stranger from Texas she finds on the internet.

As Susie doggedly tramps over unknown terrain from La Rochelle to Geneva, frequently lost and either too hot or too cold, Texan Jennifer copes heroically with lost dogs, erratic electricity, old men hiding in bushes, and a language she cannot speak.

For each of them it is a life-changing experience.

Both find their resourcefulness and ingenuity tested to the limit as, in their own ways, they explore and enjoy the culture, cuisine and people of Europe's most fascinating country.

'This is one of the best travel books I have read to date. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every drop of it.' - Vine Voice Reviewer

'Susie is able to paint a picture with words that makes me feel like I am beside her on her journey. Perfect for the Francophile, the armchair adventurer, and the lover of good literature for this is surely literature.' - Vine Voice Reviewer

'This author is becoming a fast friend to take to bed with me - Kindle & a glass of red and Susie Kelly - there is little to better it in the travel writing area.' - Goodreads

Each chapter begins with a clickable link to a map showing which remote part of France Susie has reached. Why not take an immersive walk through France with Susie today... ?
