Every parent believes their child will grow up to be somebody really special, somebody to be proud of ... so how do you cope when it starts to all go horribly wrong ?
This true story of a British family living in France is told with enormous wit, and though it will sometimes have you laughing it will also have you in tears. A story that will stay on your mind long after you've finished reading.
A British family move to France in the 1990s. This book is a true story and is of interest to all mothers and all Francophiles.
"A Call From France" revolves around Debbie, the daughter who, despite an idyllic childhood, runs away from home with a French Algerian who gets her pregnant. She is not seen for four years. It is a gripping tale of love and devotion, and shows the lengths a mother will go to for her own child.
