9780984913664: A Fine Romance: Falling in Love With the English Countryside

Travel writing at its best by Susan Branch, New York Times best selling author, in a A Fine Romance, Falling in Love with the English Countryside. This charming book is part love story, part travel guide ~ a hand-written and watercolored diary/journal of Branch's six-day transatlantic crossing on board the Queen Mary 2 and two-month ramble through the backroads of rural England.     There are over three hundred photos, countless watercolor illustrations, wonderful quotes, recipes, a book list, a movie list, hand-drawn maps and so much more.  Travel with Susan as she makes her way through wildflower hedgerows to visit the homes and gardens of her literary and artistic heroes including Beatrix Potter and Jane Austen. It's a travel guide that will help you plan a trip of your own, lovely for the armchair traveler because Susan really does take you there, and perfect for all Downton Abbey anglophiles.  When you are finished, go to Susan's website where there is an interactive Appendix to the book .... you can experience driving across the Dales with Susan's own videos and find links to everything she writes about, the cottages and gardens you will want to see yourself.     A Fine Romance is book three of a Susan Branch trilogy. Book One is The Fairy Tale Girl, followed by Martha's Vineyard, Isle of Dreams, and then A Fine Romance, Falling in Love with the English Countryside. All three are hand-lettered, watercolored, filled with photos, recipes and quotes and, as Susan says, "as much magic as I could possibly stuff between two covers." Bon Voyage!

From the Author :

I love storytelling, and especially, I love doing it in a creatively visual style. I hope you enjoy it too!

From the Inside Flap :

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.
