Read from April 03 to 07, 2012 — I own a copy

Last October, I went to Paris for two nights and two days, with my 26 year old daughter, who I haven't seen for two years, and my sister and thirty something niece, who I haven't seen in longer than that! So being over fifty, I jumped at this book when I saw it in a second hand store! Standing in the street, reading the back cover, I started dreaming about my time there and only dreaming of what it would be like to spend SIX MONTHS there!
I started off being disinterested in this novel, but Mary Moody had a way of writing which quickly turned into an enthralling read, especially the historical parts of the places she visited! Even though I'm not a gardener, I was enamoured by her description of all the different gardens and plants, etc!
This was a very captivating story. Loved it! And, yes, certainly dreaming of running away from home and living in France, now!
