For fans of The Hundred-Foot Journey and The Altogether
Unexpected Disappearance of Atticus Craftsman, a moving
and charming novel from the beloved international author
of Two Out of Two that follows two entirely different
people struggling to make sense of their futures amid the
beauty of Provence, France.
It’s fall in Provence, a season that combines the first
chill of winter with a final stretch of warmth that is a
last taste of summer. To mark the end of the season, at
the local airfield a famous British rock band, the
Bebonkers, will hold a concert that is both for charity
and to celebrate charismatic lead singer Nick
Cruickshank’s third marriage. Preparations are in high
gear, everything coming smoothly together under the tight
supervision of Aileen, Nick’s bride-to-be.
In town, there is also a gelateria run by Milena
Migliari, who creates, develops, and produces one-of-a-
kind ice cream with artistic precision. Milena, who has
bid adieu to men, now lives with Viviane. Milena’s
relationship with Viviane is solid and unwavering, in
stark contrast to the delicacy of her ice cream. In a few
days Milena will undergo fertility treatments, but she is
not entirely convinced. She hesitates to confess her
thoughts, however, as does Nick, who wonders when his
relationship with Aileen lost its original spark.
And so, a British rocker and an Italian artisan find
their fates on a collision course and in the space of
three days, the chaos intensifies resulting in an
inevitable and exhilarating final encore.
