Publisher's Summary

The author of the international best-seller Almost French sets sail to explore a new paradise: Tahiti. Sarah Turnbull turns her characteristically lush prose to this spectacular landscape as she describes adjusting to another new culture. In All Good Things, Frédéric's work takes the couple to an island near Tahiti - but there is more to the move than simply a job opportunity. In this seeming paradise, where each day begins with a swim in the magical waters of the lagoon, Sarah seeks creative rejuvenation. "Book and baby: I'd never dared speak them so boldly, but my aims for the next two years were clear in my mind before we moved." Turnbull transports the listener with her vivid, evocative descriptions of the natural environment while ruminating on the paradise myth and the special nature of islands - as well as the long-ago visit to the territory by Henri Matisse. Told with heartbreaking honesty and full of jewels of insight, All Good Things is a story about love and longings in one of the most beautiful and isolated places on earth.

Nice Memoir, Great Narrator

I liked the memoir, but it was better because the great narrator. I may not have enjoyed it as much without her.
