As the writer states this is not your usual ex pat story And I'm glad about that as the genre – of wealthy expat doing up a house in ItalyFrance and complaining about the builders has become somewhat of a cliché This is an honest frank gutsy account of carving out a new life by a courageous woman who has made a new life for herself and her family – against the oddsThere is humour and heartbreak in eual measure – from the menagerie of animals some of which are kept as pets rather than as food to the brave baring of the writer's soul Normally when I find copy editing and proofing and errors in the early chapters in a book in the 'Look Inside' section I choose to spend my money elsewhere But to be fair to the writer I was reading a free copy of this book which I'd downloaded during an early promotion and figured that as I didn't have to pay for it I should just kept reading and for once put the writing aside And I'm glad I did as I found the wit charm and honesty very engagingThe one big advantage of publishing an ebook is that it is so easy upload an edited version of your book Once this has been done and the prose given a final polish Diary of a Single Parent Abroad could do very well There is no doubt that this will appeal to readers dreaming of a new life abroad – but who haven't mustered up the courage to take the plunge I rate this book 35 stars but would happily up that rating once a revised version has been uploadedAs one other reviewer has pointed out the ending needs work as at the moment it is rather abrupt but perhaps that may be because a seuel is planned I hope so

The Diary of a Single Parent Abroard by Jill Pennington was published in June 2013 I have enjoyed this tale of an adventure that turned out very differently from the initial plan When Jill and her husband decided to move to Italy almost on the spur of the moment with their three children they had big dreams They would buy an old run down house and renovate it so that it would become their dream home Their children would be brought up in the sunshine allowed freedom than in the UK and eating fresh food grown on their own landIt soon became clear to Jill after leaving everything behind in England that she and her husband had very different dreams He intended to carry on the affair that he had been having for some time and his long term plans did not include an idyllic life in rural Italy with his familyFaced with such a shock many of us would have taken the first flight back home Back to our family back to the place where we speak the language and where our friends could support us Not Jill With a steely determination and a strength of character that is at times unbelievable she was determined that she would stay and that her children would have the life that she longed for themJill's diary takes the reader on her journey It's a tough journey and things are never easy for Jill The language is a barrier the paperwork the attitude of Italian builders and most of all the appalling treatment dished out by her soon to be ex husband Despite all of these hurdles Jill continued to believe she continued to get her hands dirty and create the life that she wantedThe book is written very simply and from the heart It's an easy often funny tale that is honest and straight talking There are parts of the diary that could do with a re edit but this is still an engaging and fascinating look at what it's really like to start over in a new country with no money but masses of self belief

The Diary of a Single Parent AbroadR food she made risotto with nettles collected from the roadside She overcame many problems learned new skills and discovered that money is not important and the only things in life that matters are health happiness and her children Jill's story is delivered with an ever present hint of humour because she says Without laughter life wouldn't be fun. MesmerizingStarted reading it and couldn't stop until I'd finished it So well written and entertaining Loved her description of life on the farm and appreciated the humor she so deftly displayed My heart ached for her and the kids with the financial deprivation they suffered but so admired her resilience and determination to make the best of things A very loving mother devoted to providing a haven for her children without bad mouthing their dead beat father to them Kids grow up and can see what's what on their own as I'm sure hers have or will She is a natural at writing Hope to read by her in the future Fun and funny too
