Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book shines as Schweikart reveals a space that looks private, but is public, and describes ways to enjoy it in all seasons." — The Back Bay Sun, June 2012

"We highly recommend this book and plan to make it a list that we'll explore in the years ahead." — Boston Zest, April 2012

"Local author Lynn Schweikart culled together 121 spots around town. The guidebook is divided into categories based on your definition of peaceful, whether you're seeking a quiet reading room or a kooky art gallery. Best of all, most locations are free!" — Metro Boston, November 2011
