What a lovely little pleasure this book was - like having a warm bath and cuddling up in your pyjamas! The Cevennes mountains and their nature and life is vividly described, as Catherine captures it in her tapestries, and you share her joy at the dipper in the river and the family of wild boar. You plant her vegetables with her and nurture them, you share her concern when a neighbour brings her a swarm of bees, you want to fight alonside her as she tries to set up her business while battling French bureaucracy... and you laugh and cry with her as she gets closer to her wonderful elderly neighbours. But this is fiction, so there's also the enigmatic Patrick Castagnol with the mysterious past and the culinary skills of Novelli - ooh, there's a lot of wonderful food and drink in this book too - and the sister Bryony who seriously gets in the way. Really loved it... no clever stuff, not even any time slipping, just a pleasure of a read...
