More Than One Kind Jean Gill

One year is nothing; one year changes everything. 'You're old and cold,' are the words that end Anne GrĂ¼ber's relationship with a fellow-teacher. What chance does she have now of finding love or even an adventure? Then she sees an advert that will change her life: a job-swap. In search of lost family, Anne jumps into the unknown. Neil expects professional development when he steps into Anne's shoes to teach in France. What he finds is passion. For one man, Luc, and for Alsace itself. Can he ever go back? And should he? 'More than One Kind of Love' challenges conventional views of family and responsibilities, making us question what risks we would take, and which relationships matter most, when tough choices have to be made.For fans of Kerry Lonsdale, Kristin Hannah, Hilary Boyd.
