Marjorie “Midge” Price, an aspiring artist in her late twenties, leaves the comfort of her Chicago suburb in 1960 to travel alone to France. Once in Paris, dazzled by everything French, she falls in love and marries an exciting French painter named Yves. When Yves buys half of a remote and ancient hamlet in the Breton countryside, Midge finds herself in an unfamiliar world where modern comforts are nonexistent and the lives and customs of the villagers have changed little since the Middle Ages. “A Gift from Brittany” is Price’s own story of the artistic passion that brought her to a new country, and two transformative relationships that would change the course of her life forever.
