I love autobiographies about real people, not celebrities who think they have wisdom to share with us underlings. (Sorry, got a bit off-track there.) Anyway, this book tells of a woman who was working as a successful writer in NYC when she meets a photographer from Texas. See, here is just the beginning of the story, not the ending. After accompanying her husband to Provence for a working vacation, she gets swept up into his vision of a lavender farm in the middle of hot and dry Texas. Although Jeannie Ralston can be very funny, she also tells us about her very serious battle with postpartum depression and losing their beloved dog. Even though I finished the book feeling very glad I’m not married to her somewhat ADD husband, I did appreciate the message that we must prioritize what is most important and choose our battles carefully.
