"I ordered a kir. I had promised myself not to drink anything that night, in order to keep my mind clear and be able to sound intelligent in proper English, but my resolution had failed immediately. He was obviously as irritating as he had seemed the first time we had met. It was, as I would realise afterwards, irritation at first..." Tiens! When Marie, an adventurous French journalist, decides to try life as a foreign correspondent in Australia, it's a steep learning curve. How to get invited to the best election events, how to get a word in edgewise at press conferences when pushy Australian writers keep interrupting, and how to make new friends - especially when Immigration has firmly suggested your French-Canadian fiance must go home. Luckily, having a suitcase full of Maman's recipes helps when homesickness hits, and it turns out the pushy Australian writer loves her galette des rois...But will Marie ever feel that she belongs in her adopted country? You can take the girl out of France, but can you ever take France out of the girl?
