Bon Courage
By

Rating
One year and one arduous home-renovation into their marriage, Ken and Bing head to the French countryside to celebrate their long-delayed honeymoon, swearing they're getting out of the home-fixing business for good. When they fall in love with the village of La Montagne Noire, they find themselves buying a fixer-upper and starting all over again-but this time, in French! McAdams recounts their mishaps and misadventures with humor, capturing the essence of French village life, the awkwardness of being foreigners in a close-knit town, the couple's hilarious linguistic pratfalls, and how the mammoth undertaking that threatens to tear their new marriage apart ultimately brings them closer together and helps them find a place in the community they have grown to love.

Reviews

"An enjoyable read. Ken and Bing learn as much about themselves and their own failings as they do about the French language and lifestyle and watching them evolve as a couple, as well as being welcomed into their new French home, is heartwarming." - Madhouse Family Review, book blog. June 2011
