Au Revoir: Running Away from Home at Fifty


Running Away from Home at Fifty Living the good life in the Blue Mountains in Australia with her husband, four grown-up children and four (and counting) grandchildren, Mary Moody's life was full.

At fifty, she had built a satisfying career as a writer and television presenter which allowed her time to look after her family, house and garden. 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. Revelling in the food, seasons and characters she encountered, Mary gained new insight into herself while enjoying life to the full. Her account of an escape - with its exhilarating freedom, new experiences and chance for renewal - will inspire every reader to run away from home.
