The Promise of Provence: A Novel - Patricia Sands I wanted to like this book more than I did. I was never fully engaged with the story. The side story that was included was more of a distraction for me and I never fully understood what it had to do with the story. The story seemed a little disjointed and was not easy for me to read.

I never really connected with Katherine. I felt like she never really allowed me to know her and that made it difficult to understand her. There were moments in the book where I thought there might be a breakthrough but it never really happened for me.

Perhaps I was not the right audience for this book. I didn’t dislike it and was able to finish reading it. It was not a bad book just not fully enjoyable for me.
