About the Book

The Promise of Provence (Patricia Sands)
Click to Read an Excerpt
After a year of heartbreak, Katherine Price impulsively agrees to a home exchange in the south of France. Colorful locals, a yellow lab named Picasso, and the inspiring beauty of the countryside breathe new life into her days.

Seeking to shed the pain of betrayal and loss, she struggles to recapture her joie de vivre and searches for the answer to a haunting question: is it too late to begin again?

An enduring story of hope and change in life’s later years is woven through the author’s love-letter to France. In this coming-of-age, transitional tale, universal feelings of loss, fear, love and trust are explored with perception and sensitivity in breath-taking surroundings.

Like a well-traveled friend, Patricia Sands invites readers into a world she loves and entices them to linger.
