This Week’s Novel Selection: A Plane Tree in Provence by Arlene Graber

Last week, Hazel Hart, my Keyhole Conversations partner, uploaded our first video interview review to YouTube of the book, “A Plane Tree in Provence,” where Arlene Graber portrays her character, Penny Wilson, who ‘tells all’ on the author who brought her to life. Check it out!

Read a sample of her writing here.


A Plane Tree in Provence won the  Kansas Authors Club 2011 first place award  in the statewide contest. We hope you enjoy a teaser of what her book is about, so read on.

Women’s Fiction:

Take five bored women anxious to escape their humdrum lives, add a journey to France, a mix  of French wines, a sprinkle  of conflict, and an amorous affair, and you have a recipe for trouble. If you’ve ever dreamed of visiting one of those far-away places, here is armchair travel that will take you to A Plane Tree in Provence. The author’s descriptions of the French countryside, the wines, and the French people will put you there as you experience the adventures and conflicts of the five women—each with her own personal issues of adultery, bereavement, and seduction. Readers will find a blend of heart-warming adventures in this satisfying novel about friendships set amid the charm of the French countryside.
