    Congratulations to YOU, Nancy! I’ve been meaning to write you a long email about how much I like the book. You’ve managed to transform short home owner narratives into pieces of literature — evocative, deeply moving memoirs that reveal how lives are intertwined — both joyfully and painfully — with a special place. Much out of the common way we magazine writers tread.
