Title:French Spirits - A House, a Village, and a Love Affair in Burgundy
When Greene, an American poet, and his wife-to-be, a molecular biologist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, discover an old stone presbytery in a lovely village in Burgundy, they know they have to live there. French Spirits is the magical tale of their life as Burgundians, from their efforts to renovate their new house and furnish it with some rather suspicious 'antique' sold from the back of a van, to dealing with the charming and unusual locals who insist the Yanks are british.
