It occurred to Eliza Thomas when she hit her forties that home might be “someplace you made.” A modest cabin in the woods of Vermont seemed like a good place to start. Thomas’s funny, heartwarming experiences transform the weekend cabin into a real home–a place where Thomas paints the floor the same color as her grandmother’s beach house porch; where hordes of ladybugs come to visit one Indian summer; and the place her adopted baby daughter excitedly recognizes as they make their way through the woods in a snowstorm. In writing that is at once funny and poignant, Eliza Thomas welcomes us into the warm and cozy rooms of her first real home. “A charming memoir . . . Thomas details the joys and problems of rural living.”–Publishers Weekly; “Pleasant to read, funny at times, candid and poignant at others . . . by the end of the book, Thomas accomplishes a remodeled future built by hand, and a sense of her life as a narrative leading home.”–The New York Times Book Review; “Another back-to-nature/independent woman story? Hardly. Which is what makes Thomas’s memoir, THE ROAD HOME, all the more enjoyable. . . . She conveys a very real, living definition of home.”–The Boston Globe.
