I'm delighted to welcome Rosy Thornton here today to celebrate the launch of her 4th novel, The Tapestry of Love.
Catherine Parkstone, a divorcee with grown up children, decides to make a new start. She moves to a tiny hamlet in the Cevennes mountains to begin working as a seamstress. Living in isolation and dealing with kind-hearted but reserved neighbours, French bureaucracy and extreme weather, Catherine may have internet access but the themes in the book are timeless and universal.
This is a gentle novel, packed with rich sensory detail and a beautiful sense of place.
So back to this blog tour. Rosy has come up with a novel idea. (See what I did there?)
The backdrop to the story includes the mountain landscape, Catherine's tapestries and the local cuisine. Cevenole recipes use local produce in the peasant tradition but can be easily reproduced anywhere else in the world.
Rosy has sent me some of these mouth-watering recipes. If you would like to receive a copy, leave your email address in the comments box and I'll send them out to you.
