Summary

Living the good life in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales with her husband, four grown-up children and four (and counting) grandchildren, Mary Moody's life was full. The only thing missing was time for herself, a chance to reflect on life and its meaning. Like many women of her generation, caught up with the commitments of work and family, Mary had never had a moment alone - so she decided to say au revoir. She ran away to live on her own for six glorious months in the rural paradise of southwest France. Au Revoir is the story of Mary's solo journey. It is funny, warm and reflective, as Mary adapts to life as a single person in the Lot, one of the most remote and beautiful parts of France. Her account of an escape - with its exhilarating freedom, new experiences and chance for renewal - will inspire every listener to run away from home.
