Thank you to all the readers who gave DRAWING LESSONS such an outstanding day in sales yesterday! I’m so happy that this novel will touch even more hearts.
A reader recently sent me this excerpt from the story, saying how it spoke to her considering the challenges we are facing today.
“Crisis strips us of everything we think is important.”
“It narrows your focus,” Arianna agreed. “I certainly learned that.”
The quiet that rested among them for a few moments was almost calming. Each woman was lost in her thoughts.
The light returned to Marti’s eyes. “But there’s a positive outcome to crisis. Once we are stripped of everything superfluous, we’re left with all we truly need in our lives.”
The weeks were bliss that my husband and I spent in Arles and the Camargue region while I researched and photographed for this story. It’s an ancient, enchanting, intriguing part of France. I feel fortunate to return there each year for a week with our women’s tour. This year I’ll be satisfied with photos and think about the new ones I will take in 2021.
Here’s un petit goût … a little taste … enjoy!
