The ultimate laugh-out-loud, good life, house-hunting, foodie, travel-tour, meet the eccentric locals, roller-coaster cliff hanger, fun memoir. A love note to the Cotswolds, one of the most beautiful regions of England.
Although it might not seem as if buying a cottage would make for an exciting story, in this Audio Book, Diz has turned her journey into a fun-filled adventure. It all begins when this Award-winning comedy actress finds herself craving Yorkshire Pudding at every meal, knowing that her roots are pulling her back from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood to her homeland in the UK. After a holiday in the Cotswolds, with her husband, Diz is hooked and the hunt is on to find her dream country cottage.
Diz’s experience as a top professional on-camera and voice actress, much in demand for Hollywood films and television, guarantees a charming read in her soft English accent for this Audio Book. During this entertaining tale she also captures the spirit of the Cotswolds in her uncannily accurate portrayals of the eccentric country characters she meets on her search for the perfect cottage.
Diz’s quest includes an exploration of the Cotswolds as she visits Roman settlements, Domesday Churches, archaeology digs, and enjoys river rambles, garden tours and pub hikes. Her roller-coaster journey leads to being charged by a bull named Chasin’ Mason, auditioning for the hind end of a horse and trampled by thirty children while wearing a bear suit. But the fondness she develops for this region and its vivid people gives her a feeling of community missing from her busy urban existence.
This memoir explores the author’s journey, through a combination of laugh-out-loud moments and cliff-hanging twists, to the satisfaction of a hard won prize. Join Diz in this five hour Audio Book as she draws the listener into her Cotswold bliss on a virtual trip to one of the most beautiful regions of the world.
