I'm reading a book called A Charmed Life by Liza Campbell. It's about her childhood in Cawdor Castle in the north of Scotland. Several years ago, my husband and I stayed a week in Scotland very close to this castle. We toured it and many others while there. I never get tired of seeing castles and cathedrals.
So when I saw this book in the Quality Paperback Book Club, I had to get it. I'm a third of the way through and really liking it.
Another good one is called The Guynd-A Scottish Journal by Belinda Rathbone. She is an American who married a Scot, moved to his ancestral home, restored it, and got divorced. That was very disappointing. I like happily-ever-after endings.
I love reading about people restoring homes and the millions of details involved. I hope someday to write the saga of building our home. We couldn't find what we wanted plus land with it, so we build a new-old house. But that's another post.
Next time I'll talk about staying in a Welsh castle last Spring. They restored theirs too and wrote about it.
