Three years into his solo adventure in rural France, Michael Wright believes he has everything he ever wanted: a ramshackle house, several manly power tools, a cat, a grand piano, and a vintage aircraft. Three unfulfilled wishes from his childhood begin to haunt him. He wants to grow one perfect potato. He wants to know how it feels to fly a Spitfire. And, more than anything, he wants to meet his soul mate.
Michael Wright’s heart-warming new book reveals how a solitary man can learn to accept being single…. Or so he thinks, until a magic alligator, a bumptious American Labrador, and the perils of landing a light aircraft conspire to offer a glimpse of a romance that promises to turn his whole world upside-down.

Beautiful listening, could listen again easily.
Colourful, deep and exciting.
For me, when the author approached the organist, in the small French village and asked to be able to play the organ at services. The church was Catholic and Michael being Anglican, new to France, showed his braveness for putting his hand up here, was so well written. Michael was willing to step-up in so many ways in rural France, with language and cultural differences between his previous English/urban life and this new country life. I can see so many of the characters he wrote of, so clearly in my minds eye.
No I have not, can't wait to listen to more.
His care and love of his tiny sheep!
I could not recommend a book more than this one. Thanks.
