In My Grape Escape, twenty-six-year-old Laura steps off the path to a prestigious legal career in London and into a Revolutionary-era ruin in the Burgundian town of Beaune with her new husband, Franck. Is this split-second, life-altering decision profoundly wise or utterly insane?
Laura's idealistic visions of bicycling through French vineyards with fresh baguettes under her arm had not included steaming plates of veal brains for breakfast or taming an electrician named Tin Tin. Still, as Laura learns the art of bartering for antique furnishings and rekindles her romance with Franck, she gains a newfound perspective. Will running from the law to the vineyards of France trump the expectations she has long held for herself? Find out in My Grape Escape, book two in Laura's popular Grape Series.
PRAISE FOR LAURA BRADBURY
“Bradbury’s Grape Series feels like a series of honest and funny letters sent from a friend about her fascinating (and sometimes baffling) life in France. A beautiful read.”
—Janice MacLeod, New York Times bestselling author of Paris Letters and A Paris Year
“Bradbury’s Grape Series takes the reader on a romantic adventure into the heart, soul, and people of la belle France. Filled with delicious food, love, and laughter, Bradbury’s writing proves that you have to dare to follow your heart wherever it leads you…and that sometimes we have to step outside our comfort zone to truly live.”
—Samantha Vérant, author of How to Make a French Family and Seven Letters from Paris

my grape escape
Again, a great read. I am not a fan of memoirs, but Ms. Bradbury’s grape series has been a pleasure to read. Major changes in life often come from unexpected directions. Her grape series and in particular this book show that fact of life. I suppose this book can be read stand alone; however, to get a full picture of what is happening read the whole series in sequence of events beginning with my grape year. I heartily recommend this book and series.
My Grape Escape
I have read My Grape Year, Village & Escape. I totally enjoyed all three of them and felt like I was walking those experiences with you, the writer! The details & explanation of the interaction between the characters was very well done. Thank you for taking me to France through your books!!
