5.0 out of 5 stars Magnifique, 14 May 2003
A fascinating book - I read it in a day. The best thing about it is its warts 'n all approach. Yes, there are plenty of passages eulogising about 'la belle vie francaise'. But these are balanced with the reality of wine-making being hard, hard work, plus of course the personal troubles she encountered. You finish the book thinking 'Great on you, girl'.

If you only buy one book about wine, buy this one. Simply fantastic.
