Description

A bestselling novel in Europe with over half a million copies sold, published in over twenty-six languages, Anna Gavalda's "French Leave "is a charming adventure that tells the story of four siblings in search of the happiness they knew as children and the bonds that once united them. Simon, Garance and Lola flee a dull family wedding (and Simon's uptight and judgemental wife) to visit their younger brother, Vincent, who is working as a guide at a chateauin the heart of the enchanting Tours countryside. For a few hours, they forget about kids, spouses, work, and the many demands adulthood makes upon them and lose themselves in a day of laughter, teasing, and memories. As simply and as spontaneously as the adventure began, it ends. All four return to their everyday lives, carrying with them the magic of their brief reunion. They are stronger now, and happier, for having rediscovered the ties that bind them. Lighthearted, tender and funny, a parable on escaping the past to find the future, "French Leave "is a tribute to sibling relationships, local Loire wines, and the art of being together."show more
