Synopsis:

For anyone who has ever wanted a country house, or a different kind of home than the one they have, this account of a young woman from the Bronx improbably finding her place in the country, a rambling early 19th century house called The Inn, is a breath of fresh Atlantic air. But it goes way beyond the tourism of so many other accounts about buying houses, because it delineates a whole life, beginning with a young child's weekend outings looking at real estate with her romantic mother, while living in cramped quarters in various relatives' houses, including for some time under an aunt's dining table. This is a lovely and lyrical account, filled with charm and wit, and of finding one's true home.
