An entertaining and informative account of encountering France, Provence and the French way of life.
It might seems strange to open a book with a single thought, "It is all about Lunch", but after a collective eight years of living in France, observing the culture, and joining in to the sense of an seemingly unchangeable pattern of behavior, it seems the only adequate way to introduce the culture and way of life.
The setting is Provence, in the South of France, and primarily in the department of Vaucluse, east of Avignon. The story is about an Irish born, American executive and his Canadian wife, and their adventures in moving to Provence and living a life long dream.
All incidents and encounters however, did actually occur, pretty much as described. It is these stories, humorous vignettes, and the characters one encounters that add to the charm of the scenery, sun, and lifestyle, creating an irresistible draw, to the most romantic part of the most romantic country in the world.
