Description

Two women become unexpected friends when they (unwillingly) move to the countryside, leaving London and city life behind. The results are quite something. . .

Izzie and Maddy would never normally have met - one bohemian and free thinking, the other materialistic and designer obsessed - weren't it for their respective husband's careers. Dumped in the countryside, both feeling like a fish out of water, their world's collide at an event. Here, they discover a mutually deep appreciation for life in London - and an equally deep hatred for women's lunches.

Soon, tragedy strikes, and Maddy has to find a way to make money fast. Together, they launch a company from their kitchen which proves to be more successful than they ever could have imagined. But when the media spotlight turns on them, the pair are forced to walk away from all they hold dear and embrace a lifestyle they hate. The question is - how far will they be willing to go?

From Publishers Weekly

27 March 2006 – In rural Ringford, England, the smalltown snobbery of the "Mercedes Mums" sets the standard, but two London transplants, Maddy Hoare, a prickly, wealthy housewife, and Izzie Stock, a free-spirited, lovably disorganized freelancer, realize they share a maverick sensibility. When Maddy discovers a recipe for healing balm in an old family journal, what begins as an experiment becomes a lucrative, trend-setting enterprise she and Izzie run together, as women all over England buy Paysage Enchant . Despite their increasingly public lives, neither Maddy nor Izzie can escape the everyday Izzie's marriage is struggling, and Maddy, who is newly widowed, must figure out how to handle her affectionate French cousin, Jean Luc. Plus, both women have young children. To add to their troubles, Pru, their PR adviser, insists that they stick to an "earth-mother" image the polar opposite of their urban style. A warm, genuine friendship along with a successful cosmetics line develops in this refreshing debut, a pseudonymous collaboration from Annie Ashworth and Meg Sanders.
