Marianne is stuck in a loveless, unhappy marriage. After forty-one years, she has reached her limit, and one evening in Paris she decides to take action. Following a dramatic moment on the banks of the Seine, Marianne leaves her life behind and sets out for the coast of Brittany, also known as “the end of the world.” There, Marianne is swept up by a new life at Ar Mor (the Sea) restaurant. She meets Yann, the handsome painter; Geneviève, the fiery restaurant owner; Jean-Rémy, the heartbroken chef; and many others. Among food, music, and laughter, Marianne finds a forgotten version of herself--passionate, carefree, and powerful. That is, until her past comes calling. And when it does, Marianne is left with a choice: to return to the known or cast it aside for the future.

A different twist on a story. I especially liked the "conquering" aspect. I was able to put it down and get right back into the story. The ending seemed to drag out a bit, it could have ended a couple of times before it finally did.

There were so many good moments in this book that made for such an enjoyable read. Who hasn't wanted to disappear from their life as they know it and start anew? The characters and setting were just superb.
