Are we French yet? by Keith Van Sickle

January 26, 2022

This book is the follow up to Keith Van Sickle’s One Sip at a Time, and I am pleased to say I enjoyed it even more than the first. In ‘Are We French Yet?’, we learn more about the author’s further immersion in Provence life which he undertakes with his wife Val. I loved reading all the vignettes about the couple’s experiences with the language, culture, food and people. They are courageous in their efforts to learn French and some of their linguistic adventures make very entertaining reading.

As a lover of France and its people myself, I found each chapter full of interesting titbits, but above all, his accounts of the friendships they made and the kindness of their French neighbours and acquaintances were heartwarming. The book is light in tone and easy to read, and I can recommend it to anyone who loves France or who would like to spend time in the country, especially in Provence.

The link to the book on Amazon US is here, but it is available on all Amazon marketplaces.
