Popular gardening writer and television presenter Mary Moody is part of a generation of women who 'had it all'. At fifty, her life was full, with a fulfilling career, a husband, children and even grandchildren. The only thing missing was time for herself, a chance to reflect on life and its meaning-so Mary decided to say au revoir. For six glorious months, she left her work, family and friends to live on her own in the South of France.
Au Revoir is the story of Mary's solo journey. It is funny, warm and reflective, as Mary adapts to life as a single person in one of the most delightful parts of rural France. Revelling in the food, seasons and characters she encounters, Mary's book will strike a chord with every woman managing a busy life.
