Waterstones Says

Alive with the same quintessential je ne sais quoi that made The Reader on the 6.27 such a runaway success, this is a charming, bittersweet novel of unlikely love and late-life adventure.

Filled with all the larger-than-life characters and enchanting storytelling that made readers fall for The Reader on the 6.27, Jean-Paul Didierlaurent's follow-up novel, The Rest of Their Lives, is set to charm the world.

It's difficult to find love in a profession like Ambroise's - even his father despises what he does . . .

And while Manelle - a home-help for the elderly in the same small French town - adores her days spent with her eccentric clients, she too often ends her evenings alone.

So when an unusual request from Manelle's favourite client - eighty-two-year-old retired chef-gourmand Samuel - brings the two of them together for an unlikely road-trip to Switzerland, along with Ambroise's cake-loving grandmother, it might just be time for the rest of their lives to begin . . .

“Beautifully Told Story!”

What I love about the French translation of Didierlaurent's books is the characters insight and beautiful flaws are not lost and make them all the more endearing, even an unkempt scraggy cat..

“A beautiful book”
