Publisher's Summary

On the evening of her twenty-second wedding anniversary, Katherine Price can't wait to celebrate. But instead of receiving an anniversary card from her husband, she finds a note asking for a divorce.

Fifty-five and suddenly alone, Katherine begins the daunting task of starting over. She has her friends, her aging mother, and her career to occupy her, but the future seems to hold little promise - until, after a winter of heartbreak, Katherine is persuaded to try a home exchange holiday in the South of France.

In Provence, bright fields of flowers bloom below medieval hilltop villages with winding cobblestone streets. Charmed by the picturesque countryside, the breathtaking Côte d'Azur, and the enchantment-filled boulevards of Paris, Katherine feels life opening up once again. Lavender perfumes the air, and chance encounters hint at romance and passion. But memories of heartbreak and betrayal linger - and her former life waits for her back home. Can she find the courage to begin again?

Promise of Provence

This was the perfect book to start the series. OMG, the description of the settings in the south of France was amazing. I felt like I was visiting each place with so many memories and happiness.

Lovely story. Terrible accents

The story was delightful. Nicely developed characters and beautiful descriptions. The reader should stick to English only. Her French accent was terrible and she mispronounced many words. Her Australian accent was so bad I almost stopped listening.

Her life story

I can't remember enjoying a book, but feeling it went on and on? It seemed as if she went through a crises, it was settled, and then we went through another and, then something new popped up.
I did enjoy the story, and the characters were fully fleshed out. What happened and how she met and grew and solved her problems were interesting. The description of the travels was enjoyable. I bought the next book. lol well see if I still feel the same.
