Synopsis of book»

Twenty years after first setting eyes on Bel-Air de Grezelongue, her dream house in the sunflowers in south-west France, Ruth Silvestre brings us the long-awaited sequel to the adventures.

Local friendships and bonds of loyalty that she and her family formed during the gradual restoration of their once derelict farmhouse have now deepened. The children, both hers and her neighbours, are now adults. Wedding festivities and banquets are described in mouth-watering detail as, with natural joie-de-vivre, a close-knit society celebrates and prepares for the coming generation.

A Harvest of Sunflowers is a joy to read from a writer who can illustrate the simplest experience with exuberance and affection. Both moving and highly amusing, this book will hold the reader’s attention from beginning to end.

These three books (A House in the Sunflowers, Reflections of Sunflowers, A Harvest of Sunflowers) are the most authentic stories of someone willing to be absorbed into French rural life. Our experiences are almost the same,although some things are changing, many of the old characters passing away. We have had a wonderful 22yr. experience, the only regret being that we cannot anticipate another 20 yrs. Thank-you to our thoughtful & adorable French friends & neighbours. Vive la (rurale) France.Eileen Walsh

We return to visit Bel-Air de Grezelongue and just as the sunflowers drop their majestic heads and fade away to return and renew and flower once more as a new summer begins, so we see a new generation and we rejoice once again as Ruth Silvester's fabulous French journey continues. Magical.Julie, Lancaster
