"The Suitors sets out to be a farce and a frolic, but throughout there is an undertone of nostalgia and wistfulness for a disappearing way of life." — Wall Street Journal.
L'Agapanthe, that beauteous summer home in the south of France where wealth is without question and the discreet, proper manners of another era predominate. Laure and Marie have summered there since childhood with their parents. But times have changed, the parents are tired of managing the big house, and Laure learns to her dismay that L'Agapanthe is to be sold.
VERDICT: Deceptively charming and delightful. - Library Journal.
