The coast of Southern France sparkles in this sexy, mature, and engaging debut novel.Lily has come to southern France in search of a new perspective, hoping that the sun's soft rays and the fragrant sea breezes will provide a relaxing respite from the demands of her lively daughter and her family's Idaho cattle ranch. Two years after her husband's sudden death, in the house that's been in his family for generations, she finally finds some stolen weeks to make sense of the past.To Madame Olivetti-her cranky old manual typewriter-Lily entrusts all her secrets, pounding out the story of the men she loved, the betrayals she endured, the losses she still regrets. And with the companionship of Yves, the seductive handyman who comes by to make repairs, Lily comes closer to understanding her exhilarating past-and to discovering she has a new story to tell-one about the delights of starting over.

I shouldn't have to work this hard to get into a novel...Can you spell pretentious? Not sure I can. But if I can, I'd use it to describe this book. Oy! Why do New York editors always go for the pretentious stuff!
