Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride while visiting France from the comfort of your armchair.

Join single mum Emma and three-year-old Lola as they embark upon a remarkable road trip in honour of her father in a 1979 Peugeot 504 named Clancy.

Blending a mother's devotion to her loved ones and the thrill of the open road, Clancy Goes to France is an inspiring true story of how life's experiences are best when shared.

This travel memoir celebrates the lessons passed on from parent to child and illustrates how a love of travel binds the generations of a family. The story lends itself as a travel guide to France's most alluring destinations and includes wonderful descriptions of the places they meandered through.
