In a beautiful French valley, a woman discovers renewed hope and a message of love sent down the years. 

In a career rut, abandoned by her husband, with a daughter settled overboard and a newly married best friend, life seems to be passing by for Fiona. Until a letter comes from a French lawyer stating about a inheritance from a relation that didn’t exist until that point. The beautiful French valley initiates a much- needed healing process. Fiona falls in love – with France, with the new house, and two different but equally attractive men. 


The striking colors of the book and the dramatic title definitely helps in ensnaring your attention, but as a reader what strikes you the most about the book is the poignant moral behind the story: “It’s never too late to start over.” This same idea could be found in every chapter making it a beautiful read. 

While the plot and the storyline was beautiful and poignant, I was not able to  appreciate the romantic drama and the characters that were involved in it. For a 51-year old, I found the character of Fiona bordering more on the teenage line than a mature adult. 

My opinion: Other than the character potrayal, the plot is really good and I would recommend book solely based on that. 

My rating: 3 out of 5
