A genuine fortified medieval castle in one of the most beautiful regions of France.
Majestic towers and battlements amid its acres of grounds, the castle is a feast for the eyes everywhere you look, both inside and out. Live for a week inside a picture!
Located in the Perigord Vert region of the Dordogne, picturesque villages and towns, castles and rivers, vineyards and walnut orchards abound. Lots to see, lots to paint, a photograph everywhere you look! You will see the city of Perigueux with its medieval pedestrian quarter boasting one of the most picturesque cathedrals in France as well as Roman ruins dating.
Market day in the town of Riberac, painting in the town of Brantome with its Abbey founded by Charlemagne, the castles of Bourdeilles, Mareuil, Puyguilhem, and Chateau de Villebois- Lavelette, the river Dronne with the cliffs it has carved out along its banks. Lovely Althea Crawley, 17, lives with her kind but clueless twice-widowed mother in Crooked Castle, a drafty white elephant perched precariously on the Yorkshire coast.
Book Aunt: A Review of Keeping the Castle by Patrice Kindl
With few funds to make ends meet, Althea, unlike so many fictional heroines who go off on unlikely adventures, accepts that she must marry for money. Prospects look up with the arrival in the neighborhood of handsome, young Lord Boring. When Althea launches her campaign, described in military terms, to secure his affections, not all goes as planned. As she pursues him, her occasional outspokenness raises a few eyebrows but also attracts admiration from an unsuspected quarter. Kindl respects the conventions of the genre while also gently mocking it.

While the happy ending comes as no surprise, the path to it is funny as well as satisfying, with many nods to Jane Austen along the way. There was a problem adding your email address.
