The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton is published today, 14 October, in paperback. I received a review copy in advance and reviewed the novel on our sister site British Expat. The setting for the story is Cévennes in rural France and the characters make the most of nature’s bounty which is freely available to them – wild boar, herbs, mushrooms – as well as all the locally produced food such as goat’s cheese. And almost everyone makes their own honey. It’s a gentle novel and one where the reader can easily relate to the characters. Please do pop over to British Expat and read my full review of it.
To celebrate the paperback publication of the book, Rosy has created a booklet which contains recipes based on food cooked and served by characters in the novel. You can download the free recipe booklet from the link below.

I liked the simple wholesome recipes and hope to blog about some of them soon. If the free recipe booklet whets your appetite to read the novel too, it’s now available on Amazon UK.
