Overview

A thrilling ocean voyage on the Queen Mary 2 from New York City to Southampton culminating in a two-month ramble through the charming back roads and small villages of the pastoral English countryside in the spring of last year is the subject of this delicious travel journal that Susan has painstakingly hand-lettered and water colored in the way many of us have grown to love over the years.

Join Susan as she recounts her lighthearted ramble of discovery through the historical homes and gardens of art and literary heroes, along ancient footpaths, through wildflower meadows and fields of lambs, into tea rooms, pubs and antique stores. This lovely hard-cover book includes hundreds of photographs and a red ribbon sewn-in book mark. A FINE ROMANCE is a work of art, part love story, part travel guide and all dream come true.

Meet the Author

Susan Branch is the American author of the thirteen HEART OF THE HOME lifestyle books (with her new two-book memoir, there will be fifteen). There are over four million books in print, all of them homemade, hand-written, and watercolored ~ books about the home arts of cooking, gardening, homemaking, family, best friends, entertaining and the little things that make life sweet. Susan has also been designing best-selling calendars since 1993 and has licensed her art and design to many other things, from dishes to fabric to hooked rugs.

Born and raised in Southern California, Susan followed her heart to the island of Martha's Vineyard in her 30s, "unable to live any longer without four seasons and picket fences as everyday architecture." She shares her 1849 Captain's home with her two kitties, Jack and Girl, and Joe Hall, "the man of her dreams." She writes a newsletter called "WILLARD," named for her grandfather, that goes to 53,000 subscribers monthly and is is available through her blog at www.susanbranch.com.
