LARGE PRINT VERSION of Dream Wheeler. The true story of a woman in her mid sixties who followed her dream. At sixty-four, Jane Lambert swapped her ex-council flat in London for a derelict cottage in rth western France. Being in a wheelchair was the least of her worries. Battling freezing winters, blocked drains and dwindling finances, Jane revated her run down cottage and turned the empty plot of land into a gardener's paradise. But her biggest challenge still lay ahead. After three years in France Jane went looking for love. She put an ad in the local paper and embarked on a series of blind dates, telling ne of them about the wheelchair. At the age of sixty-seven she met seventy-two year old Rene, a cantankerous, opinionated ex-Parisian. And that was when her troubles really began.
