Summary
NATIONAL BESTSELLER

From the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop , an extraordinary novel about self-discovery and new beginnings.

Marianne is stuck in a loveless, unhappy marriage. After forty-one years, she has reached her limit, and one evening in Paris she decides to take action. Following a dramatic moment on the banks of the Seine, Marianne leaves her life behind and sets out for the coast of Brittany, also known as "the end of the world."

Here she meets a cast of colorful and unforgettable locals who surprise her with their warm welcome, and the natural ease they all seem to have, taking pleasure in life's small moments. And, as the parts of herself she had long forgotten return to her in this new world, Marianne learns it's never too late to begin the search for what life should have been all along.

With all the buoyant charm that made The Little Paris Bookshop a beloved bestseller, The Little French Bistro is a tale of second chances and a delightful embrace of the joys of life in France.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Marianne has been stuck in a loveless and unhappy marriage for 41 years, spiraling deeper and deeper into a depression she can't even name. She runs away to Paris late one night, vowing to leap into the Seine and let the river wash her problems away. A quick-thinking bystander saves her life, and Marianne decides to flee to a seaside village in northern France. Still unsure of how her life is meant to unfold, she takes a temporary job as a cook in a seaside restaurant, savoring new tastes of life in the briny oysters and crisp wine. Other senses are also awakened when a kindhearted painter arouses feelings Marianne thought were lost forever. When her husband arrives in Brittany with new promises of undying love, Marianne is faced with her toughest decision yet. George envelops the reader in the sights, sounds, and smells of the coastal town, heightening Marianne's new experiences with lush descriptions of Breton life. Fans of Elizabeth Gilbert and Isabel Allende will adore this courageous story of new beginnings, second chances, and the power of self-love.--Turza, Stephanie Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "George, author of The Little Paris Bookshop, returns with a refreshing and well-crafted novel set along the coast of Brittany in northern France, proving that it is never too late to change your life. Marianne Messmann is a 60-year-old German woman whose 40 years of married life have been dictated by her verbally abusive husband, Lothar. While on a trip to Paris, Marianne decides that she really has nothing left to live for and decides to end it all in the Seine. Even as she bemoans her rescue in a Paris hospital room, Lothar constantly criticizes her. She decides to start anew and walks out of the hospital and on to a new life. Marianne makes the journey to the coast of Brittany, where she is charmed by the village of Kerdruc. While there, Marianne works as an assistant to a chef, makes a host of new and unique friendships, and even finds love. Marianne is an easy character to identify with in her quest to find meaning in her life. The idyllic seaside village setting is evocative, and the supporting characters are memorable and believable.
