This is a gorgeous book about the French countryside, with beautiful photographs and essays. There are chapters about the French Circus, the town of Aix-En-Provence, and many others. Beautifully written, and it gave me great ideas for decorating my home.

Having been to Provence may times, I was expecting to revisit my favorite place. Instead, this book is a 'ladies who lunch' frivolous interpretation of the beauty, guts and soul of Provence. Most of the numerous flower photos and still lifes could have been taken in a studio. The author's fawning over her decor and daughters or friends made me feel more like I was reading the society page. NO art or vision here. Save your money...even at half price! This is a big coffee table nothing !French Essence: Ambience, Beauty, and Style in Provence
I thought it would have more articles .

I was disappointed that there were not more descriptive articles about some of the towns around Provence. I would have loved to have known more!
