Description

Can a two-career couple really pick up stakes and move to Provence?

Keith and Val had a dream-to live in Provence, the land of brilliant sunlight, charming hilltop villages, and the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean.

But there were two problems: they weren't French speakers and they had full-time jobs. So they came up with a plan . . .

Follow their adventures (and misadventures) as they quit their jobs, become consultants, and split their time between two countries. Laugh along as they build a life in Provence, slowly mastering a new language and making friends with the locals over long meals and just a bit too much wine.

This light and breezy memoir is full of wry observations on France, like the power of cheese to sway elections, the right and wrong ways for men to kiss each other, and the law requiring that blood donors must speak French.

If you've ever dreamed of changing gears and learning what joie de vivre is really all about, you won't want to miss this delightful book.

Reader reviews

  • (4/5)
    A funny book that makes me want to pack my bags and go to Provence.
  • (4/5)
    A light hearted romp through Provence as the Van Sickles learn more about France and the French traditions on repeated trips to that country. They improve their language skills and no doubt put on weight as they eat their way through delicious foods. Not heavy reading with plenty to learn about another culture. Lots of short chapters, 63 to be exact, some of which end rather suddenly, better editing required.
  • (4/5)
    Fun to read the new experiences of the author in a different culture. The experiences are that of mundane day to day life but in the authors words transforms into a wonderful journey. The book stays true to the proverb 'be happy for the ordinary especially the ordinary'.
