If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?
Having spent two years alone in France, doing his best to survive in a foreign land, and failing miserably to woo a dishy French copine, Michael Wright has everything he ever wanted: manly powertools; a cat, chickens and sheep; earthy neighbours; an aircraft and a grand piano. Yet he is still alone and - in a moment of rare self-knowledge - decides that the only way to find the girl of his dreams is to stop looking for her. Yet barely a week after coming to this momentous decision, an email from an old school friend re-introduces him to Alice - a paid-up city girl who speaks only three words of French and comes with an expensive shoe habit and a deep-rooted mistrust of the countryside. Even worse, she lives and works on the far side of the Atlantic, in Baltimore, USA.
And so begins an unlikely romance, conducted across two continents, as Michael the rustic hermit struggles to unlearn his lessons in living alone and contemplates the alarming prospect of sharing his French life (not to mention his aeroplane) with someone else...From the Back Cover:
The more time I spend alone, close to nature, the more beautiful the world somehow becomes. And the more beautiful the world becomes, the sadder it seems to have no one with whom to contemplate it.
Yet I am almost forty years old. If I were going to meet someone perfect, wouldn't I already have met them by now, when our lives were still ahead of us, and before all the charming young women in the world had been snapped up by young men far more willing to commit than me?
