A Northern Light in Provence by Elizabeth Birkelund (Early Review)

A Northern Light in Provence by Elizabeth Birkelund (Early Review)

A Northern Light in Provence was an absolutely delightful surprise. I was lost in and enchanted by the Provence of this book. I found so many aspects of this book interesting: a glimpse into the life of a translator; what it might be like to live in Greenland (definitely not for me); traveling to Provence and falling in love with life; a taste of the Proven├žal language; the journey of self-discovery; a book about books. Po, the poet whose book Ilse is translating, is both a character and a setting and is larger than life. He speaks so beautifully and so poetically that it makes me want to read his fictional book of poetry! This book has been added to my favorites list and I imagine it will be one that I return to.
5/5 Stars
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
