I'm a sucker for travel memoirs. But I find so many of them are solitary pilgrimages, lonely adventures. In this book, though, the author takes the reader on family trips; I met (in the story) his bride, his parents, cousins, brother, and eventually his daughter. And it was not a one-time meeting. We returned to different spots for holiday all over England, and through the pages and the years, I experienced the joy of a new baby, sadness of watching parents age, a marriage deepening and a heart divided by the Atlantic Ocean.

I was delighted to visit E.F. Benson's town in the travels and really, truly hoped to catch a glimpse of Lucia and Mapp!

I'll read this book again and again, I know.
