"Two dogs and a suitcase: Clueless in Charente (Sarah Jane's Travel Memoir Series Book 2)" by Sarah Jane Butfield is a beautifully written book. Many of us have dreams to live abroad and the author not only did it, but she shared her memories and experiences in a very enjoyable way.
I haven't read the first part of her travel memoir series but that isn't essential. If you wonder what it is like to live and renovate a house in France then this is the book for you. Plenty of fascinating anecdotes and a very reflective and at times philosophical perspective made this so much more than just a re-telling of what has happened to her and her family.
Combining popular themes, such as house design and travelling, this book hit the right spot for me.
