Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

""A quirky, captivating memoir filled with warmth, wisdom, and laughter. A single woman in her forties moves a tiny cottage twenty-five miles across Cape Cod to join it to her house.""

Review:

"A few years ago, the author, a habitual reader of classified ads, saw something that caught her eye. Completely assembled cottages were for sale for $3,000, but, if you wanted one, you had to be prepared to move it yourself.... [A] series of misadventures that might have come from a comic novel, and a narrative style that makes you keep turning the pages." David Pitt, Booklist

Review:

"When the author, forty-something, single, and an admitted 'compulsive reader of the classifieds,' spies a notice of cottages for sale, she is immediately intrigued.... She has injected this memoir with warmth and humor, adding an unexpected dimension to the myriad fascinating details of construction in which she immersed herself for a year. Whouley's is an engaging saga that should appeal to anyone who has actually accomplished such a project, or simply longed to do so." Deborah Donovan, Foreword Magazine

Synopsis:

Memoir of a single woman who moved a one-room cottage twenty-five miles and attached it to her three-room house, to make more room for her life and her work. Along the way the way she received help and support from a group of eccentric friends, an army of tool-wielding men, and her bossy gray cat.
