Description (from the publisher):
Here is a moving novel about love and hope in the face of loss, in which a small house in the French countryside may be responsible for mending hearts since WWII.

Brokenhearted and still mourning the loss of her husband, Heidi travels with Abbott, her obsessive-compulsive eight-year-old son, and Charlotte, her intolerably jaded sixteen-year-old niece, to spend the summer repairing their family home in a small village in the south of France. There, thousands of miles from home, Charlotte makes a shocking confession, and Heidi learns the truth about her mother's "lost summer" when she was a child. As three generations collide with one another, with the neighbor next door, who seems to know all their family secrets, and with an enigmatic Frenchman, they'll journey through love, loss, and healing amid the lavender fields, warms winds, and pistou soup of Provence.

About the author (from the publisher):

She is currently at work on her next novel, The 7th Pact of the Winslow Sisters, which Bantam will publish is 2012.

Sounds interesting. Not much fun of historical fiction though I read most genres. Would still be looking out for it.
