More about The Little French Bistro
From the New York Times and internationally best-selling author of The Little Paris Bookshop, an extraordinary new novel about self-discovery, second chances, and finding true love.
Marianne is stuck in a loveless, unhappy marriage. After 41 years she has reached her limit, and one evening in Paris she decides to take action. Following a dramatic moment on the banks of the Seine, Marianne leaves her life behind and sets out for the Brittany coast.
There she meets a cast of colorful and unforgettable locals who surprise her with their warm welcome and the natural ease they all seem to have, taking pleasure in life’s small moments. These new friends help Marianne rediscover parts of herself that she has long forgotten, including a special gift for empathy and healing. And when she finds love with a handsome artist, Marianne is forever changed.
With all the buoyant charm that made The Little Paris Bookshop a beloved best seller, The Little French Bistro is a tale of second chances and a delightful escape to the joys of life in France.
If you are looking to dive into next months delicious read, in July we will be reading: The Dirty Life: On Farming, Food and Love, by Kristin Kimball
When Kristin Kimball left New York City to interview a dynamic young farmer named Mark, her world changed. On an impulse, she shed her city self and started a new farm with him on 500 acres near Lake Champlain. The Dirty Life is the captivating chronicle of the couple’s first year on Essex Farm, from the cold North Country winter through their harvest-season wedding in the loft of the barn.
Kristin and Mark’s plan to grow everything needed to feed a community was an ambitious idea, and a bit romantic. It worked. Every Friday evening, all year round, over a hundred people travel to Essex Farm to pick up their weekly share of the “whole diet” – beef, pork, chicken, milk, eggs, maple syrup, grains, flours, dried beans, herbs, fruits, and 40 different vegetables – produced by the farm. In The Dirty Life, Kristin discovers the wrenching pleasures of physical work, learns that good food is at the center of a good life, falls deeply in love, and finally finds the engagement and commitment she craved in the form of a man, a small town, and a beautiful piece of land.
