Sarah Jane Butfield about this book: It is September and we are now in the Charente, South West France. We could not have imagined that we would find ourselves moving from the UK to Australia in 2008, and then to France in 2012. I believe that there is always something positive to come from any negative situation or experience. However, in 2010, an unexpected negative influence on my life presented itself in the form of a road rage car accident and PTSD. I struggled for a long time to find the positive from that event.
Two years after the accident and with the lengthy legal process now complete, the financial compensation sits in our bank account. We decide to fulfil another long held dream, that of renovating a small cottage in France. Enabling us to achieve owning a family home again, after losing our home and the roots to our Australian dream during the Brisbane floods of 2011. This is our French experience featuring my family and other animals!!
