A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle

This lovely light-reading book chronicles the trials and tribulations of a couple who move from England to the South of France. From language issues to remodeling their 200 year old stone home, Mr. Mayle takes you month by month through their first year journey to a new place. They learn about their neighbors, local customs, local food and restaurants and grape harvest. Mr. Mayle is the author of several books, one being A Good Year of which a movie by the same name was made. “A Good Year” remains my favorite movie! Bookshelf Wines Club members should check it out. Dinner and a movie anyone? I can’t wait to read the next book by Mr. Mayle, Toujours Provence. Sheila’s Choice for wine pairing: Bookshelf Wines 2016 Viognier
