Stories of ex-pats are popular themes in romantic films and novels. What makes Sara Verrall’s Dream It, Do It ... Why Not? special is that it is a real-life account. This makes it even more interesting than merely romantic. Following your heart often starts with dreams, and this is how her tale begins. Her move from England to France is partly inspired by a romance novel by Judith Krantz. In this charming nonfiction work, the author chronicles her ex-pat life in France that began in 2015. A woman with no practical skills and a poor grasp of the French language, feeling like a stranger in a strange land, soon learns to embrace France as her own, making new friends, and falling in love.
Dream It, Do It ... Why Not? is a book with a sweet lesson about living the kind of life you want and stopping to smell the roses. Sara Verrall gives you plenty of elements that might convince you to follow your own heart as well. The narrative may be slow at times because Verrall really takes you through every detail of her rationale for deciding to change locations in life. But she’s also got you covered on the future after those decisions, as she happily gives you a brief overview of how things are going with her today. Reading this story awakens that distinct desire present in most of us: seeking to inhabit a new world that will open your heart and mind to a life-changing experience.
