This elegant 26th edition of the French Country Diary employs vintage typography and 58 evocative new photographs by Guillaume de Laubier to enhance the captivating design of this unique engagement calendar. The gleaming slipcase features a vibrant blue and white Provençal fabric pattern with a contrasting border fabric from the Olivades company in Saint-Rémy, while the linen-textured hardcover book itself has a red floral design that displays the year “2014” in a decorative medallion. Each of the week-at-a-glance spreads offers a vignette of the French countryside, including gardens, private homes, villages, and inspiring landscapes. This year’s diary visits the posh resort of Biarritz, poised on the shores of the Atlantic in the Pays Basque; strolls through the romantic gardens of Eugénie-les-Bains in the Landes region; explores the palm-decked harbor town of Villefranche-sur-Mer on the Mediterranean, with its pastel-hued hillside homes; and enjoys a pre-Christmas evening on the Left Bank at the Deux Magots café. Also included are lush four-color endpapers, generous space for jotting daily notes, a ribbon stitched in to mark each week, and back matter that includes decorative address pages.

Something broke inside me. I knew somehow that it was all over . . . . Sweat started in my armpits; my scalp tingled; I had no choice but to stand there in the center of the dusty road, grip my [bicycle] handle bars, and wait.Virginia dAlbert-Lake It was on this road deep in the forests of France on June 12, 1944, that the Germans arrested Virginia dAlbert-Lake and an Allied airman she was leading to safety. DAlbert-Lakes work in the Resistance was overshe would spend the next eleven months as a prisoner of war, much of it in the notorious Ravensbrck concentration camp for women, where she almost died.Virginia dAlbert-Lake was one of thousands who risked their lives saving downed airmen along the Comet escape line that stretched from Belgium to Gibraltar. What distinguished Virginia from other resisters was that she was an American citizen who had the option to return to the safety of her native country. Yet she chose to remain in France where her dangerous work nearly cost her life.This fascinating book tells the remarkable story of an ordinary American womans heroism in the French Resistance. Born in Ohio and raised in Florida, Virginia Roush fell in love with Philippe dAlbert-Lake during a visit to France in 1936; they married soon after. In 1943, they joined the Resistance. Defying gender stereotypes, Virginia put her life in jeopardy as she sheltered downed airmen. As a prisoner of war, her refusal to reveal secrets saved many lives, and when Free French and Allied forces finally liberated her in 1945, she weighed 76 pounds, 50 pounds under her normal weight. After the war, Virginia stayed in France with Philippe, receiving awards that included the Lgion dHonneur and the Medal of Honor. She died in 1997.Judy Barrett Litoff brings together two rare documents in this unique bookVirginias diary of wartime France until her capture in 1944 and her prison memoir written immediately after the war. Masterfully edited, they capture the compassion and toughness of a nearly forgotten heroine as they provide an invaluable record of the workings of the Resistance by one of the very few American women who participated in it.
