Books inspired by France
Our hand-picked selection of books to get you in the mood for your France holiday
An epic novel following four families over hundreds of years: bound by forbidden loves and marriages of convenience; dogged by vengeance and murderous secrets; torn apart by the irreconcilable differences of birth and faith, and brought together by the tumultuous history of their city. A book which bursts to life in the intrigue, corruption and glory of its people.
Chosen by Stuart
A poignant two-part novel about French society at the point of the German invasion of WW2. Originally intended as 4 parts, the author's untimely death in Auschwitz in 1942 prevented the rest from being written. This was discovered and published 65 years later and is now hailed as a masterpiece.
The now-classic "upping roots" book about Mayle and his wife who bought a 200 year-old French farmhouse to begin a new life. This book was one of the first of its kind and follows the hilarious and unexpected, but ultimately enchanting, escapades that followed.
