La Belle Saison - Signed copy

£14.99

Product description

A signed copy of La Belle Saison - Living off the Land in Rural France, by Patricia Atkinson. Published in 2005 by Century Books, London. Signed by the author with an inscription in French (please see photo).

When Patricia Atkinson first moved to France, her intention was simply to establish a vineyard. Over the years, however, she found herself becoming integrated into a way of life that, had she stayed in England, she would hardly have believed existed. Grounded in the rhythms of the land and the seasons, daily life in Patricia's south-western corner of France is dictated by a series of rituals and celebrations that have been lost in the supermarket age. La Belle Saison is the author's eulogy to this way of life; a testament to the timelessness of the French countryside, and the French neighbours who showed the author that a simple life has many rewards. A captivating celebration of one woman's achievement of a dream over adversity.

In very good condition, with slight signs of shelfwear to the unclipped dust jacket. A bright and clean copy.
