There are several tears to the front and back cover, and some wrinkling to the top of the front cover. The price has been crossed out with pencil.
Published in French as "La Joie de Vivre".
In Zest for Life Pauline’s parents have died and, aged ten, she comes to live with relatives in the small seaside town of Bonneville in Normandy. The sole inheritor of her parents’ legacy, Pauline’s interests are guarded by a collective of well-intentioned but not very effective souls and it is not long before her fortune is at risk.
