SYNOPSIS: The year of her fiftieth birthday, gardening writer Mary Moody ran away from home, family and work for six months to live in a remote French village. They were six months that turned the rest of her life upside down, as she bought a house in the village, persuaded her husband to sell the family home of twenty-five years and take up goose farming, and abandoned her television career in favour of writing about her travelling experiences. Yet, even these dramatic events were merely the outward sign of far deeper changes. To her surprise, Mary found herself grappling with the intense emotion of an affair, and its consequences to her marriage and family. Her account of this fraught subject is frank, honest and painful, just as her and her husband's responses to it are moving and inspirational. Amid this turmoil, Mary also rediscovered a sister not seen by the family for nearly fifty years. "Last Tango in Toulouse" is Mary's compelling account of these tumultuous upheavals in her life, and an affirmation of the power of family in overcoming the greatest challenges. Written with humour, warmth and passion, and an often searing honesty, "Last Tango in Toulouse" shows that life really can begin again at 50. Quantity Available: 1.
