Description
On the 20th anniversary of living at Bel-Air de Grèzelongue, the dream house in southwest France that she introduced us to in her memoir A House in the Sunflowers, Ruth Silvestre here gives us the next part of the story that began in 1976. The friendships and loyalties that she and her family formed during the gradual restoration of their once-derelict farmhouse have deepened. The children—both hers and her neighbors'—are grown and the close-knit community celebrates the new generation. Silvestre describes wedding festivities and banquets in mouth-watering detail, the tastes and smells of Lot-et-Garonne seeming to float from the page.

"Both romantic and funny.... [The book] lovingly portrays the people, history, food and traditions of this beautiful French region."—Summer Break Magazine
