What would it take to change your life?

Jocelyne is 47. She lives in a small provincial French town, runs her own dressmaking shop, has been married to the same man for what seems like an eternity, has had two children and lives a very ordinary existence. In fact so ordinary that she is beginning to wonder what happened to her, to all those dreams she had when she was seventeen.

Then comes the chance to change her life completely - but should she? For when Jocelyne begins to look at her life and its small pleasures - her friendship with the twins who run the hairdresser next door, her weekends away, her sewing blog - she realises that maybe ordinary isn't so bad. Until the decision is taken out of her hands...

The List of my Desires is a wonderfully heart-warming novel about what we value in life and the search for happiness.

One of my favourite reads of the year! What would you do if you won the Euro Lottery? Jocelyne faces this dilemma - how will this totally surprising outcome affect her family and herself. A really insightful and memorable read.
