The First Thing You See, Paperback / softback Book

The First Thing You See Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Imagine you are a young mechanic living in a small community in France.

You own your own home, and lead a simple life. Then, one evening, you open your front door to find a distraught Hollywood starlet standing in front of you.

This is what happens to Arthur Dreyfuss in the village of Long, population 687 inhabitants. But although feigning an American accent, this woman is not all that she seems.

For her name is Jeanine Foucamprez, and her story is very different from the glamorous life of a star.

Arthur is not all he seems, either; a lover of poetry with a darker past than one might imagine, he has learnt to see beauty in the mundane. THE FIRST THING YOU SEE is a warm, witty novel about two fragile souls learning to look beyond the surface - for the first thing you see isn't always what you get!
