Perfume from Provence was first published in 1935 and became a best-seller. Winifred Fortescue was an actress who rubbed shoulders with the likes of Jerome K. Jerome and George Bernard Shaw when she married Sir John Fortescue, the king's librarian and archivist and famous historian of the British Army. Tempted by a better climate and the cheaper cost of living, they left England and found a stone house amid olive groves, high in the hills above Nice. Almost at once they were bewitched by the landscape and especially their garden - delightful terraces of vines, wild flowers, roses and lavender - and by the charming, warm-hearted and wily Provencals.

So much more poignant and profound than the one-note Peter Mayles series written many decades later. KUDOS to BPL for re-stocking this! Check out Lady Fortescue's other books.
