Parfait état

A France you've never known...

Susan's Mayfield's book is firmly off-the-beaten track, visiting little-known and well-known places alike to investigate the mysteriousness of this strange country.

She visits every corner of France, from the English Channel to the Pyrenees and from the Atlantic to the Côte d'Azur. She takes us through history, she investigates mysteries and she probes into the secret lives of fascinating people.

She pins together the stories of churches and cathedrals, abandoned villages, mystic events, miracles, kings, queens, ordinary people, artists and writers to reach a conclusion that may surprise you.
