Synopsis

Fatima's Good Fortune by Joanne and Gerry Dryansky

She can change your life. If only she could change her own-Deep in the heart of Paris, in the elegant Sixteenth Arrondissement, at the top of the smart apartment building at Number 34b is Avenue Victor-Hugo, on the sixth floor at the end of a long landing, there is a housemaid's simple room. This is Fatima Monsour's new home. She has left her home on a beautiful Tunisian island to work for the exacting Countess Poulais du Roc. Baffled by even the most mundane tasks, only Fatima's natural compassion and sheer grit ensure her survival - and gradually her unique gift for altering the lives of those around her begins to have an astonishing effect. Irresistibly touching and witty, this story of love, loneliness and determination is alive with the sights, sounds and tastes of Paris. Fatima's Good Fortune is a tribute to the power of kindness in an unpredictable world.
