Life often changes when we least expect it. After a year of heartbreak, Katherine Price impulsively agrees to a home exchange in the south of France. Colorful locals, a yellow lab named Picasso, and the inspiring beauty of the countryside breathe new life into her days.

Seeking to shed the pain of betrayal and loss, she struggles to recapture her joie de vivre and searches for the answer to a haunting question: is it too late to begin again?

An enduring story of hope and change in life’s later years is woven through the author’s love-letter to France. In this coming-of-age, transitional tale, universal feelings of loss, fear, love and trust are explored with perception and sensitivity in breath-taking surroundings.

Like a well-travelled friend, Patricia Sands invites readers into a world she loves and entices them to linger.

If you enjoyed Under The Tuscan Sun or Eat, Pray, Love, get ready to lose yourself in the south France!

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): sexy cheese
It was interesting to read the journey of a woman finding herself after a disastrous and disappointing marriage.

Loved the descriptions and tips of places to visit in France.

fyi: not a superficial romance
