5.0 étoiles sur 5 A memoir of life in France that you will want to read again 24 septembre 2014
Par FrenchVillageDiaries - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
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).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Looking forward to our own visit to this region of France 24 mars 2013
Par Joywriter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
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 If you love la France profonde, food, and nice people, read this book! 29 octobre 2015

Not so different from many similar memoirs, but Ruth Silvestre still managed to draw me into their tale of renovating an old and neglected house, called Bel Air. Ruth and the characters of the village and farms are immensely likable, and although one simply knows how much hard toil is going to be involved for Ruth and her husband Mike one reads on with great glee and enjoyment. I've read all 3 of the "Sunflowers trilogy", one after the other. I loved the descriptions of the food of the region, maybe the detailed history of cathedrals and other historical places a little less so. (If one intends to wander that way, however, her meticulously researched historical details would be of great interest). I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Terrific Start to the Series! 14 octobre 2015
Par Serena - Publié sur Amazon.com
A wonderful story about a British family who found a wreck of a house in the French countryside in 1976. Even though I am sure they would have liked to they did not live in France full time. They spent summers and shorter vacations there and renovated when they had the money. What makes the book very special is the family's close relationship with their French neighbors. And yes, the food was amazing and made me very hungry.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 very good English, but too slow for me 6 février 2016

It was well written. very good English , but too slow for me. It is all about restoring a house and French eating habits. There are a lot of comments in French, which are not translated all the time and I don't speak French.
