The Little French Bistro
I have earlier blogged about The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George, and now I have also read The Little French Bistro.
It is about Marianne a 60 year old German woman. She has lived in a sad, joyless and uneventful marriage with Lothar. On a trip to Paris she decides to jump in the Seine. She is rescued and sets off to a little fishing village in Brittany. Little by little she comes to know a lot of people. I liked most of the book, but the last part held too much mystery (the legend of king Arthur, fairies, witches etc) and too many unhappy love stories to be given a happy end.
A quote from the book I really liked: "I am not old. I've just lived a little longer than some people". Also lovely descriptions from Brittany, where we have spend a couple of holidays. Carnac and the monoliths are mentioned in the novel, and this is a picture of some of the thousands of monoliths from our holiday in 1986.
