An excellent book if you are thinking of visiting the British Isles.
Charming, well written book describing author's love affair with England over the years.
Great book to read before going to England. Going to England 12 years ago was my first time out of the US o/t Mexico. Now I look for all types of travel narratives, history, historical fiction, etc in any area I hope to travel today. It adds so much to the trip!
I read this book prior to planning our trip to the Uk. Then I proceeded to read her other two titles. I enjoyed each one of them and wish she would write more. I had never written any other 'travel' type book, except for 'Under a Tuscan Sun'. Now this travel-memoire type of book is just about my favorite thing to read. Reading her books is very very nearly as good as going there.
