5.0 out of 5 stars A privilege to read Karen's most personal thoughts, 12 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Tout Soul: The Pursuit of Happiness in Rural France. (Paperback)
By the time I began reading this third book in the trilogy (which stands alone without the necessity of reading books one or two), I felt that I knew Karen like an old friend. Her descriptions and observations of the people and places surrounding her made me imagine I was living in the same part of rural France as her - trying out the restaurant, sitting at the cafe, the walks with the dog and the village square with its most significant building. The characters come alive too - especially the wonderful Magda, who is more than just the cleaner, and respected Delphine, who is more than just the mayoress. But above all, this is a love story of the highest magnitude - poignant, sad and uplifting in equal measures at each turn of the page. Karen bares her soul like nothing I've read before. I felt privileged to have been allowed to share Karen's most personal thoughts about her dearest friend. A magnetising read.
