Présentation de l'éditeur

In the late 1970s in the south-west of France, Ruth Silvestre and her family found Bel-Air de Grèzelongue, a house that had been deserted and uninhabited for ten years. They fell in love with it.

A House in the Sunflowers tells of their love affair with the house; from the ups and downs of buying and renovating it, to the challenge of becoming part of the local French community. Sprinkled with mouth-watering descriptions of gastronomic feasts in the glorious sunshine, and fascinating insights into the history and customs of this stunning area, this charming, funny and romantic book is an absolute must for everyone who wants to fulfil their dreams of living abroad.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Looking forward to our own visit to this region of France 24 mars 2013

Yet another new favorite of mine, a memoir type story about life in the Dordogne region of France. A House in the Sunflowers chronicles the author's purchase of a wonderful old French farmhouse near Montflanquin in 1976 and the subsequent decade of summers tending it with love, and watching it blossom along with the establishment of deep friendships with their French neighbors. The time of their purchase seemed a cusp time in the region ... farmers tilling the generational farms slowly began turning to new machinery and equipment to compensate for decreasing manpower. It's beautifully written with interesting insight into back-in-the-day rural France. We will visit Chateau de Biron also in this region in May and look forward to market days, wonderful regional food, as well as this story's sequel ... a Harvest of Sunflowers on its way from the U.K!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A memoir of life in France that you will want to read again 24 septembre 2014

I read the paperback version of this book many years ago and was so pleased to see it brought to kindle that I had to buy it and read it again. Second time around it didn't disappoint and I have read many similar books (some good, some not so) since my first read of A House in the Sunflowers.

This is the first book in The Sunflower Trilogy and tells the story of Ruth and her family finding Bel-Air de Grèzelongue in the Lot-et-Garonne and despite it being unloved and uninhabited for ten years, to them it was the perfect house in France. Their story is very different to many similar memoirs, mainly because they bought their holiday home in the 1970's. A time when there was no local expat network offering help and advice, just them and their French neighbours and the special friendship that grew over the years.

Ruth writes with fondness about the way their neighbours at the working farm down the lane did their best to welcome the strange newcomers and became good friends, including them in family celebrations, local events and inviting them to help with the harvests, all of which helped integrate them into the community. There was lots of work to do on the house, so their time spent on holidays in France was busy and sometimes stressful, but they were always happy to be back in their new French community.

Ruth generously shares their many new experiences and insights into the French culture in an engaging way. I read this book shortly after our move to France and I can't tell you how comforting it was to read it during our `settling in years'. I have read many move to France memoirs, before and after moving, but these three books by Ruth will always be very special to me. See also A Harvest of Sunflowers (The Sunflowers Trilogy) and Reflections of Sunflowers (The Sunflowers Trilogy).

As this book had to come all the way to Australia, I was really surprised at how fast it arrived. I know my husband will be surprised to get this present on Christmas Day.
