A mature cross-cultural romance about an Australian transplant to France whose relationship is tested by cultural misunderstandings, a surprise move to the French countryside, and the tiny matter of a baby on the way

Ella moved to Paris on a whim—and found happily ever after. But after six months of romantic bliss living with her French boyfriend, cheesemonger Serge, Ella's new life is thrown off course. An unplanned pregnancy doesn't seem too bad, until Serge unexpectedly decides to move their growing family to a goat farm in the Loire Valley, without consulting Ella. Can Ella and Serge's relationship survive their relocation to the depths of the French countryside?
