Whether built by a 1770s French Huguenot or a 1940s American starlet, cottages capture hearts and imaginations for generations to come. Gross and Daley showcase the journeys of thirteen American homes and their owners—artists, preservationists and visionaries who have created unique spaces filled with history and personality. Two hundred luscious photos combined with engaging narration give a window into the heritage, inspiration, and creativity that made each cottage its homeowners’ perfect match.
