A Year in Provence
by Peter Mayle

What could go wrong when we act on our dreams?

After using the remote countryside of Provence as an annual getaway from life in England, Peter Mayle and his wife decide to purchase a gorgeous old farmhouse. What they didn't realize was the purchase included some very comical neighbors and a myriad of other eccentric characters who call Provence home.

The book unravels just like the seasons, with twelve chapters outlining each month of the year. Part memoir, part travel guide, and part beginners’ guide to Provence, Mayle's often amusing descriptions and experiences give the reader an intimate and honest look inside what it is really like to be a permanent resident of Provence, rather than a temporary visitor.
