About Lindy Viandier
Lindy was an advertising feature writer for a North Wales newspaper, has written freelance short stories for various UK magazines and had articles on language and culture featured in French Property News. She has a great love of literature and cites the authors Laurie Lee, Gerald Durrell and Lawrence Durrell as her sources of inspiration. Lindy worked as a nurse in Wales for over 20 years before moving to Paris to be with her French partner, now husband. After taking an intensive residential course to qualify as a TESOL teacher, she taught medical English to nurses, midwives and physiotherapists in teaching hospitals in and around Paris before buying Les Libellules, the 300-year-old house that is the inspiration for her memoirs. Lindy is an avid photographer and loves cooking and creating recipes using her home-grown produce, many of which feature in her book.

“Is it too much?” I mouth to my husband when the estate agent’s back is turned. I’m talking about the amount of work, not the asking price, as we survey the dilapidated state of the 300-year-old house. He gives me a knowing look, purses his mouth in a French way and shakes his head. He’s going to do a deal. The truth is, too much work or not, it’s too late. The fairy-tale cottage has spun her magic web around us, and we are her willing captives. As I set out on my voyage of discovery, will I enjoy a leisurely existence close to nature where I can cook with produce from my garden, or will country life not be as cosy I imagined?
This is the first enchantingly uplifting instalment in the Life at Les Libellules series and is perfect for fans of Janine Marsh, Frances Mayes and Peter Mayle.
