Catherine Sanderson

French Kissing
  • French Kissing

  • Name: Sally Marshall
    Status: single mother
    Age: 32
    Nationality: ten years in France, yet still English through and through
    I like: Living in Paris, playing with my daughter Lila (four years old), the company of good friends, the smell of baking bread...

    So reads Sally's ad, posted on a French online dating site called Rendez-Vous. Sally left Nicolas, her French boyfriend of ten years and Lila's father, after she discovered that he was having an affair with his secretary. Six months have now passed, and although most of the time she feels as if she's just dashing around like a headless chicken, she's beginning to bounce back. But making a new start is fraught with complications. As she meets freshly single Frédéric for a drink, spends the night with charmer Manu and runs away from ex-pat Marcus, she wonders: can she find a way to reconcile motherhood with single womanhood? To what extent can she keep Lila and her love life separate? And is she truly ready to turn her back on Nicolas?
