Synopsis: 

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. 

Review:

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
