Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Summary, etc.: "In this lushly written follow-up to Almost French, Sarah Turnbull explores a new paradise: Tahiti. Having shared her story in her bestselling memoir, Almost French, Australian writer Sarah Turnbull seemed to have had more than her fair share of dreams come true. While Sarah went on to carve out an idyllic life in Paris with her husband, Frederic, there was still one dream she was beginning to fear might be impossible-starting a family. Then out of the blue an opportunity to embark on another adventure offered a new beginning-and new hope. Leaving behind life in the world's most romantic and beautiful city was never going to be easy. But it helps when your destination is another paradise on earth: Tahiti. "--

    As warm and welcoming as slipping into the lagoon for a morning swim, the latest journey of former Australian journalist Turnbull unfurls with the same charm as her popular Almost French (2003). Turnbull and her French husband relocate from Paris to Tahiti for his job, in the midst of arduous fertility treatments to try to have a child. The culture clashes continue, both inside and outside the marriage, as the couple adjusts. While describing their life in paradise—complete with a tropical lagoon in the backyard—and her frustrations over the inability to conceive, Turnbull manages neither to gloat nor to wallow, instead employing humor and bracing honesty. As much travelogue as memoir, Turnbull's account captures the glorious palette and fragrance of the islands while remaining clear-eyed about the challenges of life there. As ever, Turnbull is a perceptive, evocative guide to other lands and cultures. Deeply touching, this is for fans of her first memoir who are curious about her next adventure, and also for a more general audience attracted to the tale of facing the unknown with humility and delight.
