MORNING IN GASCONY by Jay William Hudson


Email this review


The sheer delight in the feel of the French scene would make this a popular story to anyone who knows and loves France. In addition, it is a good tale of an American who tried to lose his past, to forget the heartbreak of his disillusionment, and -- to that end -- bought a farm in Gascony and, bit by bit, remade himself into one of the people. There is romance, too, in his growing realization that he loves the peasant girl who is his neighbor. A quiet story, charmingly told, and memorable primarily for its nostalgic recapturing of Gascony, and the characteristics of the peasant and village types.
