In 1976, in the Lot-et-Garonne region of south-west France, Ruth Silvestre and her family found Bel-Air de Grezelongue, a house that had been left, deserted and uninhabited for ten years. They fell in love with it. A House in the Sunflowers and its sequel, A Harvest of Sunflowers, described their adventures in renovating the house and becoming part of a community. Charming, funny and romantic, these popular books described an unforgettable love affair with a country, a region, and a community.
Reflections of Sunflowers is the final book in the trilogy and sure to delight. Almost thirty years since they first discovered their dream house in the south of France, Ruth Silvestre and her family are still in love with it. Characters new and old fill the pages, their way of life at once unchanged and altered radically by the passage of time. Some friends have been gained through the years, some, tragically, have been lost. Amusing and moving, Reflections of Sunflowers is a joy to read from a writer who can illustrate the simplest experience with exuberance and affection.

Reviews

"'It has all the pleasures of an authentic love affair' The Times 'Exuberantly detailed... the author's great merit is that she makes us accept it on such enchanting terms.' Observer 'Readers who themselves have an affection for France should enjoy this book with its real taste of Aquitaine.' Oxford Times"
