Gentle and astute obsevations from an impoverished Brit who bought a house in Provence in the early 1930s. Descriptions of moving day, local customs, general life etc, with humour: she pokes gentle fun not just at the locals but at the foibles of the British gentry of the times. A bit long-winded in places, but generally a pleasant and enjoyable read.
