History and culture

Image by Olivier Piquer

History - Josephine, Joan d’Arc and all those wars with the English! Oh-la-la. Here you’ll find books about the people and situations that shaped France.

Culture - One small word to describe all those other interests about France where my reading leads me, including French-themed novels, gardening, crafts, and beautiful interiors.

Rachael Hale McKenna

A picture tells a thousand words, and Rachael, a fellow kiwi, has much to say… her beautiful books on beloved French cats and dogs was one of the first large sized books about France that I received as a gift from my lovely Kirk.

 

Rachael has a huge international following who love her photography of baby humans and baby animals. Her website link is here.

 

For these two books, she explains how moving to France with new husband and baby, was the culmination of a dream to live in la belle pays, and to have the time to capture animals in their natural habitat, resting, playing, interacting with other animals, and thinking deep thoughts.
