I hope your day is going well. As you know, reading is my favorite pastime, and this seemed the ideal time to share these books with you, since August is officially sunflower month around here.
In 1976 the author and her husband found an uninhabited house in the southwest part of France and fell in love with it. This is the story of their purchase and the variety of struggles to repair and make it a home and make themselves part of the community. Ruth Silvestre is an actor and singer in Great Britain. Her husband was an artist whose charming drawings enhance the books.
This volume recounts bittersweet events after twenty-five years in their home, and rounds out the story. If you like books about travel and people who who explore different cultures than your own you might enjoy these memoirs as much as I did. They make excellent summer reading, especially if a trip to France is one of your dreams. Ruth Silvestre is a very good writer, in addition to her triumphs in the theater.
Have a good rest of your Wednesday,
