Month-by-month account of a British couple who buy an old farmhouse in Provence. The detailed descriptions of meals made me hungry. The detailed descriptions of house renovations drudged up the memories of my house renovations. I enjoyed the way that the book was broken down by month, allowing the reader to really feel the pace of life in this rural section of Provence. I'm ready to book a trip for the fall when all of those annoying tourists go home.
