From the Publisher

"On a tiny French island, a couple of American dreamers redefine their lives by restoring a ruin-which in this lovely, shimmering story becomes a parable of a saner, greener, more sustainable path that we all can follow if we will but listen to the wisdom of the villagers the way the Wallaces did. The French House moves to a soulful, very funny rhythm all its own."-Meryl Streep "A brave, insightful, and very amusing memoir about a fantasy that many of us have had but not dared to attempt."-Jane Smiley When life hands you lemons, make citron pressé . Shortly after Don and Mindy Wallace move to Manhattan to jump-start their writing careers, they learn of a house for sale in a village they once visited on a tiny French island off the Brittany coast. Desperate for a life change, the Wallaces bravely (and impulsively) buyit almost sight unseen. What they find when they arrive is a ruin, and it isn''t long before their lives begin to resemble it-with hilarious and heartwarming results. Redolent with the beauty and flavors of French country life, The French House is a lively, inspiring, and irresistibly charming memoir of a family that rises from the rubble, wins the hearts of a historic village, and finally finds the home they''ve been seeking off the wild coast of France. "Don Wallace has crafted a delicious French bonbon of a book? full of humor, hope, and lessons on how to live a life full of meaning."-Dani Shapiro, bestselling author of Devotion and Still Writing " The French House isn''t a memoir. It''s a vacation. Charming, gorgeous, perceptive, it is peppered with unforgettable characters and steeped in the deep red wine of long-termfriendship, showing us how a remarkable place can make a life worth living."-Jennie Fields, author of The Age of Desire
