The first time I met my darling Joe we discovered we both had the same dream -- of taking a voyage to England on an ocean liner. To celebrate our 25th anniversary, we did just that, crossing the Atlantic on the Queen Mary II and spending two months wandering the English countryside. I kept a diary of the journey, and when we returned home to Martha's Vineyard, I put it all together in this hand-written book.
A fine Romance begins with the story of how Joe and I found each other and fell in love. Then we're off -- on a quest for serendipity and discovery. Join us as we walk ancient footpaths over hill & dale, along winding hedgerows to castles, cottages, romantic gardens, tearooms, antique stores and pubs. We'll take you through historic homes such as Jane Austen's house and Beatrix Potter's Hill Top Farm; from Kent to the Yorkshire Dales to the Cotswolds and more. You'll find recipes, maps, and travel tips.
As you are about to see, A Fine Romance is proof-positive that dreams really do come true.Reseña del editor:

Each page is a piece of art -- filled with paintings, pictures, and her handwritten and unique thoughts about everything from pubs to Beatrix Potters Hill Top Farm. It is both whimsical and a visual tour de force of art and words.
