She can change your life. If only she could change her own...deep in the heart of romantic Paris, in the elegant Sixteenth Arrondissement, at the top of a smart apartment building on Avenue Victor-Hugo, on the sixth floor at the end of a long landing, there is a housemaid's simple room. This is Fatima Monsour's new home. She has left her life, family and friends on a beautiful Tunisian island to work for the exacting Countess Poulais du Roc. Baffled by even the most mundane tasks, only Fatima's natural compassion and sheer grit ensure her survival - and gradually her unique gift for altering the lives of those around her begins to have an astonishing effect. Irresistibly touching and witty, this story of love, loneliness and determination is alive with the sights, sounds and tastes of Paris. Fatima's Good Fortune is a tribute to the power of kindness in an unpredictable world and an unforgettable portait of "la belle Paris".

Review:

"Fatima's real "wisdom" is to use her own loneliness to comprehend that, whatever our position in life, what ultimately matters is "belonging to someone"... A witty and touching love story" (Sally Vickers, bestselling author of "Miss Garnet's Angel" and "Mr Golightly's Holiday")

"Fatima's Good Fortune is that rare bird: an intelligent feel-good novel" (Douglas Kennedy, author of "The Pursuit of Happiness" and "A Special Relationship")

"The words "feel-good" and "intelligent" don't often go together when describing a novel. This, however, is a welcome exception; if you need to restore your faith in kindness and the simple things in life, this novel will warm even the most cynical of hearts" (Glamour)
