FREE Book promotion weekend for Our Frugal Summer in Charente #RPBP

FREE an unusual culinary travel memoir set in Charente.

Today is my first attempt at a FREE promotion on KDP. 
Our Frugal Summer in Charente: An Expat's kitchen garden journal 
Meet Sarah Jane, a woman with a reputation for culinary catastrophe who tries to keep her family fed in challenging circumstances in rural France. Frugal living was not part of the plan when they arrived from Australia to undertake the renovation of a quaint cottage in the Charente. However, when life throws them a curve-ball the challenge was set. How to survive in France with very little money and two Australian cattle dogs. The answer came in the form of 5 chickens, 4 ducks and a vegetable garden! The frugal plan was to save money by any means possible, to enable any money they could earn to be invested into continuing the renovation of the cottage. In true ‘Good Life’ style Sarah Jane attacks this challenge head on by keeping some small livestock and converting a garden, that resembled a meadow, into a French ‘potager’ or kitchen garden.The French tradition of using produce from their ‘potagers’ is renowned for enabling families to create meals that are healthy, cost effective and simple. 
There are 31 recipes for a variety of food and drinks, included in a month by month account, of how they transformed a neglected garden into a frugal yet productive expat kitchen garden. 

Comments from the beta readers: 
“The photographs are a great addition and they enhance the visual conception of the challenges you faced and the results you achieved.” John Brewer 
“A thoroughly enjoyable read, written in your usual honest and down to earth style.” Carol Peden.

Top notch yet again ! Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Sarah's first two books I was delighted to welcome a third ! I certainly wasn't disappointed Sarah has a wonderful writing style and a lively sense of humour and the subject matter of this book was an entertaining and interesting change . This author has taken me out of my comfort zone nationwide and I'm so glad she did. Try it you will love it

I really enjoyed reading this, the author delved deep into her own inspiring adventure and cooks up some delightful sounding recipes that I would really love to try. It was great to see the development grow the further I read.
