Lost in Translation by Audrey Davis
ABOUT THE BOOK
Charlotte Egerton and family are off to Switzerland, after husband Dom bags a big-time job promotion.
But Charlotte isn’t exactly yodelling with delight at the prospect. Not since a chance discovery cast a shadow over her ten-year marriage. And navigating twisty Swiss roads and getting to grips with French only adds to her woes…
Following a bumpy encounter with an arrogant German, Charlotte is far from convinced the expat life is for her.
With doubts about Dom — and concerns for her best friend, Ruth — plaguing her mind, will Charlotte embrace the Swiss way of life, or are some mountains just too hard to conquer?
Embark on a journey filled with laughter, tears and lessons in love. Sometimes you just have to seize the day…
Being uprooted from your home is difficult, especially when you have been given no choice in the matter. When Charlotte and her family move to Switzerland from her home in England, her life begins to change. Will she be able to adapt? Will she be able to rekindle her relationship with her husband?
Charlotte is a kind person and a good mother who has lost her way. She’s always putting others first until betrayals are revealed, new feelings are stirred, and she has to make some important decisions.
One feels for Charlotte’s loneliness being in a new country and not knowing who she can trust with her personal problems. There are school moms who she has coffee with, but it’s not the same as talking to her no-nonsense BFF Ruth who lives in the UK. It’s her new compassionate and handsome friend, Jurgen, who gives her invaluable advice and the support she desperately needs. Yes, Charlotte is gullible when it comes to her husband’s excuses, but speaking from experience, sometimes it takes an in-your-face catalyst to finally realize the truth.
I respect Charlotte’s quiet strength and calm dignity in how she ultimately confronted her troubles with the courage of a lion. I also admire how she stayed true to her vows even though no one would have blamed her for finding solace elsewhere. I also admire Jurgen’s gentle acceptance of Charlotte’s feelings and giving her time and eventually a HEA.
This is a love story full of many emotions. It’s about finding the truth and grabbing a chance at happiness.
Thank you to Ms. Davis for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
