Short Synopsis
If you've ever dreamed of changing gears and learning what joie de vivre is really all about, you won't want to miss this delightful book.

Full Synopsis
Can a two-career couple really pick up stakes and move to Provence?

Keith and Val had a dream—to live in Provence, the land of brilliant sunlight, charming hilltop villages, and the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean.

But there were two problems: they weren't French speakers and they had full-time jobs. So they came up with a plan . . .

Follow their adventures (and misadventures) as they quit their jobs, become consultants, and split their time between two countries. Laugh along as they build a life in Provence, slowly mastering a new language and making friends with the locals over long meals and just a bit too much wine.

This light and breezy memoir is full of wry observations on France, like the power of cheese to sway elections, the right and wrong ways for men to kiss each other, and the law requiring that blood donors must speak French.

If you've ever dreamed of changing gears and learning what joie de vivre is really all about, you won't want to miss this delightful book.
