Stop for Breakfast
Stop For Breakfast continues the story from Simon Temple-Bennett’s award winning first book Undressed for Dinner, of a family trying to lead an ordinary life in an extraordinary place.
With the loss of Simon’s mum, two teenaged children vying for ever more attention, a financial climate gradually suffocating them and their dream French home back on the market the couple feel the draw of the southern sun strengthening by the day.
In desperation, they start a smallholding with near disastrous consequences, expand beyond their already exhausted means while their efforts to remain sane are thwarted by ridiculous bureaucracy and government jobsworths. It’s a gentle, humourous and self- deprecating take on mid-life, parenting of teenagers and self-employment and the ups and downs of having to deal with all of them at once.
