He smiled. Donna’s voice didn’t even try and conceal her enthusiasm. And
she was right. The light in the Provence was something close to magic.
Even he could see that, unromantic as he was. He just wished she wouldn’t

He found the entry to a field way and swerved into the narrow road. He
was glad they’d rented the small Citroen as it was very easy to manoeuvre

Donna flew out of the car, armed only with her small camera and
determination to take photographs of yet another perfect sundown.
