The heroine, Natalie, makes mistakes, but she has a big heart. Her story is told with insight and a unique sense of humour. Natalie's life changes at 40. She expects to remain living in a sleepy market town in the South of England, but her sport-obsessed husband, Gerry, has a cycling accident in France, and this changes everything. She takes her old Fiat and her little dog across the English Channel to collect him. Natalie cant read maps and takes many wrong turnings. Instead of arriving at Rouen Hospital, she finds herself alone in Paris. A new world of experiences awakens her desire for a different life. In Le Louvre, she stares at the Venus de Milo wishing this goddess of love could change her marriage. Her journey takes her on through France, across the Pyrenees, and finally to Barcelona. She experiences unexpected pleasures, but also faces times of sadness. Art plays an increasing roll in her life and the flamenco dance brings out her wild side. Natalie wants to fit her newfound self into her old home life, but with the potential for new love and an exciting career offer, she must decide - should she leave Gerry? This book is for people who like to escape into a story of love lost and found, and be entertained. Marriage, A Journey and A Dog includes tes for reading clubs.
