'A delightful, wry and witty comedy set in the south of France...enchanting reading' Publishing News When Alice's gynaecologist husband leaves her for his nursing assistant, she's left homeless, heartbroken, the wrong side of forty and with no life skills to speak of. So she has nothing to lose, she figures, when she buys a tiny studio flat in a strange building called the Maison Puce, on the Cote d'Azur, and starts a new life in the South of France. But getting a new life and getting over it aren't as easy as she thinks. Especially when you're dealing with more than a broken heart - broken roof tiles, and a very broken French accent don't simplify matters, either...
