The Promise of Provence by Patricia Sands

When a life changing event happens to Katherine, changing her life in an instant, her world crumbles and completely falls apart.  Slowly she begins to pick up the pieces and she decides to take part in a home exchange programme, to take some time out of her life and travel to the South of France.

It is in the South of France where the adventure begin for Katherine, travelling alone she is about to find her own identity, a new person within herself, that will help her become stronger, and adapt to the major changes in her life and move on.

I am really enjoying Patricia Sand’s books. They are quite remarkable, and really do have you hooked from page one. I really liked Katherine and admired her strength and dedication to finding it within herself, to pull herself back up from such an awful situation she finds herself in. It is a book about moving on from the past and new beginnings. I also have to mention how wonderful and different the endings are to Patricia’s books.

So why not take time out of your own life and take a trip to Provence? All for the price of a book!

  4. I recently read this book and loved it. I've never been to Provence but the writing made everything feel so real, it made me think I was right there with Katherine.

  5. Nikki, I'm so pleased you enjoyed Katherine's journey. I thought I had finished the story but, thanks to reader demand, a sequel will be out this summer! Allons-y!
