No cover available for it yet, but I just found out that Jude Morgan is writing a book about William Shakespeare called The Secret Life of William Shakespeare. I just loved his books about the Romantic poets and the Brontës. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for the release of that one.
I was looking around for more books set in France, and I found On Rue Tatin: Living and Cooking in a French Town by Susan Herrmann Loomis. Loomis bought a 14th century convent in Normandy and set up shop. The book has 50 recipes!
I also discovered My French Life by Vicki Archer. Like Loomis, Archer bought an ancient home—a seventeenth century farmhouse in Provence. I’m not jealous. I’m not jealous. I’m NOT jealous.
Can you imagine being able to pick everything up and move to the French countryside? Ah well, at least we can read about others who can.
I’m still on the lookout for more books like this, preferably fiction. Know of any?
