A road trip that will test every bit of one couple's courage and resolve to the limit... Francesca and Rick don't give up easily - which is just as well when they decide to adopt a child internationally after being turned down in the UK. They can have children naturally but believe passionately in adoption and their desire to do some good in the world sees them go to Mexico. With no idea where to start, they plunge straight in and find themselves in a country that seems stuck in the 1970s. Faced with a series of nail-biting unexpected twists and turns, this is a personal touching human drama and a heartbreaking account of one couple's trials and tribulations. The story will hook you in and keep you reading as their journey brings them into contact with a cast of characters straight out of Hollywood casting, from a demented but loving mother to a lawyer offering babies for sale in Starbucks. Francesca's writing is inspired by authors Chris Cleave, Niccolo Ammaniti and Isabel Allende. Mexican Takeaway will appeal to women, mothers and especially those who are interested in adoption. It will also reach readers who enjoy true stories of impossible adventures in exotic destinations. Francesca and Rick's story has already had high press visibility with an article in the Daily Mail and The Sun, and Francesca appeared on BBC and ITV during National Adoption Week.
