5.0 étoiles sur 5 C'est magnifique!!
C'est magnifique!! The Promise of Provence stole my heart… Katherine was such a wonderfully human and understandable character. I related to her immediately and through her story that unfolded within the pages of The Promise of Provence I was reminded of so many important lessons learned in my own life.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Travelogue or romance?
I persisted with this but wondered all the while why I was finding it such hard work. It has all the ingrédients for a good read: a life-changing drama to start with, wonderful settings in Canada and Provence, an eclectic mix of characters, efficient editing, good grammar.
I think it was the stilted style which did not appeal. Trying to intermingle a romance...

C'est magnifique!! The Promise of Provence stole my heart… Katherine was such a wonderfully human and understandable character. I related to her immediately and through her story that unfolded within the pages of The Promise of Provence I was reminded of so many important lessons learned in my own life.

As I read The Promise of Provence I was reminded of Eat, Pray, Love. Let me admit first that I have yet to read Eat, Pray, Love (though I own it and intend to do so). I have only caught the film adaptation during a transatlantic flight. That being said I am not making any comparison of the authors or the novels, but just the essence of the story… to live life as if each day is your last, to savor the present and relish the moment. I remember when I saw the film of Eat, Pray, Love it was just that which stuck with me and I appreciated the film simply as a reminder that just when you feel you have reached the end of the book of your life you realize that the best chapter has yet to be written, to live in hope. It is such an important mantra to remember and one that is so easily forgotten.

I enjoyed every page of Patricia Sands’ The Promise of Provence for its rich detail of the landscape, architecture, history and especially the food of the Provence region of France. If you have ever visited or wish to visit this magical spot Sands manages to truly capture the essence of Provence in this novel. I will warn you also that reading The Promise of Provence will make you crave brie with baguette so please do yourself a favor and have these on hand before beginning the novel. Oh, and a bottle of your favorite French wine as well certainly wouldn’t hurt!

I loved the “extra” the author included in her epilogue so make sure to read the novel to the end… I look forward to hearing from Katherine in October! I encourage you all to read The Promise of Provence for a beautiful reminder of an ancient idem:

Carpe diem, quam minimum posterior credulous!
Seize the day, trusting as little as possible in tomorrow!

Ich habe es ganz gerne gelesen, aber ich finde, es handelt sich hier eigentlich um zwei ganz verschiedene Bücher. Das eine war mir ein bisschen zu sehr in der 'rich and beautiful people' Szene verankert. Leute, die sich es einfach so nebenbei leisten können, mal eine Weile die Luxuseite der Provence anzugehen, dass ist für mich leider nicht sehr realistisch. Und ^passt überhaupt nicht zu dem zweitenBuch, die Aufarbeitung der Geschichte ihrer Mutter, die meiner Meinung nach nichts mit dem ersten Buch zu tun hat. Eher abschreckend als Sommerlektüre. Die Vorstellung vom Eintauchen in ein authentisches Provenceabenteuer wird stark durch die bedrückende Athmophäre dieser Aufarbeitung entzaubert..
