Description

When Yvone Lenard returned to her native France and purchased a house in a hilltop village of Provence, an enchanted world of food, wines, and unusual adventures including chicken rustling, flirtatious advances from neighbors, and a seance opened up before her. This is her account of the spell cast on her by Provence, from her first morning s visit by a charming prince bearing a jug of the village s vin rose to the growth of her friendship with a duchess in the local chateau. Lenard shares tales of travels to St. Tropez and visits from American friends who find unexpected romance and magic in Provence. Told with verve, wit, and Lenard s deep understanding of the French language and culture, this memoir includes tales of others who have been drawn to the region, including Vincent van Gogh, Brigitte Bardot, and Princess Caroline of Monaco. Ways to re-create the magic of the region s sensuous way of life include recipes for food and drinks, as well as tips for entertaining in the Provencal style."show more
