How often have you strolled through the villages of Sense and Sensibility, climbed the windswept moors of Wuthering Heights, or raced down dangerous alleys in Oliver Twist’s London? These classic scenes are memorable because their authors used their own homes and surroundings to create them.
A Dream House takes you on a journey to sixteen homes of English writers. Follow Carol Chernega as she admires the table where Jane Austen polished her masterpieces, explores the boathouse that was the inspiration for Agatha Christie’s Dead Man’s Folly, and meets Tricki Woo and Mrs. Pomfrey in James Herriot’s surgery.
Each chapter includes a brief biography of the author (or authors) that lived in that home, travel directions, and what you’ll find when you arrive. Whether you’re an armchair traveler or planning a trip, Carol’s humorous adventures and thoughtful insights will entice you into entering the world of literary England.
