The true scents of Provence? Lavender, thyme, and septic tank. There are hundreds of interesting things you can do in a bath, but washing dishes is not one of them, nor what writer Jean Gill had in mind when she swapped her Welsh Valley for a French one. Keen to move out of the elephant’s stomach, that stew of grey mists called weather in Wales, she offered her swimming certificate to a bemused Provencale estate agent and bought a house with good stars and its own spring water. Or rather, as it turns out, a neighbor’s spring water that is the only supply to the kitchen, which, according to the nice men from the Water Board, is emptying its dirty water directly and illegally onto the main road. And there’s worse … But how can you resist a village called Dieulefit, “God created it,” the village “where everyone belongs”? Discover the real Provence in good company!

Author Bio: Jean Gill

Jean Gill writes the following about her book, How Blue is my Valley: Everything in this book is true! I wrote about the experiences of our first year here in this beautiful part of France as they happened. Writing this sort of autobiography is a bit nerve-wracking as you have no idea where the story is going or what’s going to happen. It must have been worth writing because a reader told me she nearly wrecked her machine at the gym from laughing while reading and cycling. No doubt she was reading about some particularly horrible experience I was suffering!
