They achieve their dream when they move to Brittany, home of the Johnny Onions onion sellers who long ago sold their wares door to door in England. Theyre thrilled when their neighbour, Pierre, turns out to be a retired builder and hope hell help them do up their spooky old house which Judi is convinced is haunted by the ghost of a gnarly old fisherman. Life becomes one long merry-go-round of aperitifs and dinner parties when they join a French conversation class but they wonder if theres any substance behind the new friendships theyve made. Ross loves life in France and finds his niche fishing for sea bream, bass, spider crab and lobster. But Judi is homesick and finds it hard to settle. Fed up with having her time monopolised by elderly oddballs like Annick with her weird doll collection and Isabelle who thinks her son is trying to kill her, she realises shes made a mistake in leaving her family. Ross reluctantly agrees to move back to England but will they lose money selling up in a falling market? And more importantly, will their relationship survive with Ross torn away from the life he loves?
