About the Author
Mary Moody trained as a journalist at the Australian Women’s Weekly in the 1960s. In the 1970s she moved to the Blue Mountains with her young family and became a passionate organic gardener. She wrote and edited countless gardening books and magazines, and was a presenter on the ABC’s top rating Gardening Australia for ten years. In 2000 Mary spent six months living alone in a medieval village in southwest France. At the end of her sabbatical she bought a house nearby that she still visits every year. She wrote four memoirs about her experiences, including the bestselling Au Revoir and Last Tango in Toulouse. Today she leads horticultural tours in France, Morocco and the Himalayas. After the death of her husband David Hannay in 2014, Mary moved back to the Blue Mountains where she is developing a large garden in an extended family home with her son and his family. She has eleven grandchildren.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

I was so excited when I saw this next chapter of Mary Moody's life was published. I so enjoyed Au Revoir - Running Away from Home at 50 that my entire reading preferences were changed forever. The door to a whole new world of the travel narrative genre was opened to me and I was delighted with the subsequent 3 books of Mary's escapes in France seemed to follow in fairly quick succession. The Accidental Tour Guide does not disappoint and is a beautifully written book honesty dealing with the end of the life of a soulmate. If you haven't read the previous 4 books don't worry this one will catch you up, but do do yourself a favour and read them all.

Really interesting to travel this road, at times very emotional and hard to read, of life, death and moving on. Very honest read and I think very helpful for those who have experienced the loss of a beloved one.

Icould not put it down!Reviewed in the United States on 27 November 2019
I have read all of Mary Moody"s books and enjoyed every one of them. This lady has had a wonderful life full of adventure and love and this latest book does not disappoint.. I could identify with the loss of her husband as mine passed away in similar circumstances and must admit to shedding a few tears at various parts. Well written and a great read
