The French Gardener by Santa Montefiore


I just finished reading The Glassblower of Murano and really liked that. I was left wit the wonderful task of picking a new book to read. I loved reading about Venice and wanted to keep reading a book about another country so I chose The French Gardener by Santa Montefiore. I started to read and I think this is going to be another good one! I am a gardener and always have been so I was drawn to the cover of this book. There is a woman standing in a field with a very distant village ahead of her. The village is very blurry so you can see that she is quite far from it. Around her though are glorious flowers, lots of flowers! From what I can see in the slightly disorted picture the flowers are poppies, petunias, dahlias, lavender and roses. The woman on the cover is wearing a very bright orange colored dress with her back to us. Should be a very interesting book! I'll keep you informed. Everyone have a very beautiful day!

What a great cover and sounds good too. I think I am going to try the Glass Blower of Murano, you're the second person I know recently who liked it.

By the way your blog looks fantastic. I like the new background and your header is just beautiful! Is that a nook in your home?

Thanks for the book suggestion, Sherri. I put it on my amazon wish list. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of it. It sounds like a really good story.

I finished reading Lost Symbol and am now reading Deception Point again by Dan Brown. I've been picking up paperback books at the library for 50 cents. :-)

Sherri, I love the look of your blog! It's absolutely beautiful!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
