From the Author:

I spent two months living in England and visiting the homes in this book.  I hope you have as much fun reading about them as I did visiting them.

From the Back Cover:

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 classics are memorable because their authors used their own homes and surroundings to create them.

A Dream House takes you on a journey to the homes of sixteen English writers. Each chapter includes a brief biography of the author (or authors) that lived in that home, how the home or countryside was used in various books, what you'll find when you tour the house, and travel directions.

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. 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.
