This follow-up to A Year in Provence is delightful. We get to find out what happened to many of the central characters from the first novel, and though it lacks a bit of the whim that the first novel contained, it's still an enjoyable read (if you read the first novel).
A delightful, easy-to-read book. Peter Mayle's writing shares various adventures of the provencal lifestyle, & surroundings and eating habits with a special flair. A few laughs are tucked within Mayle's writing. You will be glad you read the book.
This is a wonderful book. It's full of interesting characters and makes you want to live in Provence. After reading his first book, "A Year In Provence" I went out and bought a bottle of Herbs de Provence.
LOVED IT! Mayle does such a wonderful job of involving the reader in his stories. You feel like you are right there in the Luberon with him and his wife. Reading this will definitely get your wanderlust stirring.
keep a pad next to you and take notes as you read this. plan your trip to Provence even if it's just in your dreams. I am going soon and found this book not only informative but entertaining. i have already ordered two of his other books regarding Provence and can hardly wait for them to arrive.
