Not what I was expecting but very entertaining nevertheless. As well as being a "I escaped to France" book there is a lot of information about the brocante (bric-a-brac, antiques) scene. The characters are depicted vividly, although I'm glad I haven't met some of them! Anyone who has spent any time living in rural France will realise Mr Dummer has described the people who populate the tiny villages and towns with skill and humour. A quick cheerful read, perhaps for a weekend break across the Channel.
