Beloved author Peter Mayle's final piece of work takes readers through a life well lived in Provence.
Roughly 25 years ago, Peter Mayle captured the hearts of Francophiles everywhere in his bestselling memoir, A Year in Provence. In his latest volume (sadly, his last all-new work; Mayle died early this year), he reflects on how prices may have risen and technology may have changed since he and his wife became residents, but the pleasure and enchantment of sleepy village life in rural France endures. It's a warm, sentimental, vicarious glimpse into a life well lived.
