In this bestselling novella from France, three adult siblings impulsively flee a family wedding—leaving behind quarrelsome relatives and dull responsibilities—to visit the youngest brother, who works at a chateau in the countryside. For one magical afternoon in the enchanting Loire Valley, Simon, Garance, Lola, and Vincent indulge in ribbing banter, joyful memories, and excellent wine before they must return, reluctantly but buoyed by their affectionate reunion, to the demands of their regular lives. A smart, funny, and tender celebration of family, this slim novella is a sparkling literary treat for a summer afternoon. (AG)
