Meet Tottie Limejuice in this first travel memoir in the Sell the Pig trilogy which kept on growing
Meet Tottie Limejuice, as, with her customary subtle humour, she leads the reader gently by the hand. She weaves the story of what led her and her brother to decide to take their elderly and somewhat gaga mother to start a new life in France’s Auvergne.
You’ll chuckle, you may shed a tear as you meet Tottie Limejuice and her somewhat unusual family. This is certainly not your average Move to France book.
What happens when dementia, depressed dipsomania and downright dottiness decide to uproot from the UK and move to France together.
Worried by the lack of care for her frail elderly mother in the UK, Tottie decides a new life elsewhere might be the answer. Sell the Pig is a travel tale with a twist, describing with alternating humour and poignancy how a somewhat dysfunctional family decide to uproot and move to rural France. Eccentric Tottie, her manic depressive alcoholic brother, their mother, whose dementia has given her an obsession with bums, and an equally elderly border collie, decide France’s Auvergne is to be their new home. This is the story of what led them to make that journey.
This is a brand new edition with additional previously unseen content.

Tottie Limejuice’s book brought out deep emotional responses in me, I was dreadfully sad, then angry, but never bored. The book leads you through the corridors of the dreaded care homes and then deeper into the parts of your mind that you’d prefer to leave firmly shut.
