This was one of the books that we downloaded as a bargain on our Kindle.

Now, I’m not sure what was the purpose of the author with this book. Is it a novel, is it a memoir? Something in between.

It describes the ‘adventures’ of an English family, who in the 70’s decided to buy a summer home in the countyside of France. They bought a completely deserted house, that became a charming home over the years.

What I enjoyed reading about the most were the meals and wine tasting described in detail. It sure gave me an appetite for France 😀
