Random House, Inc.
Journalist and memoirist Susan Allen Toth brings her special England vivdly to life as she recalls her many trips there over the years, where she explored the countryside, traveled both second-class and in luxury, theatre-hopped, hunted for ghosts, and honeymooned. Humorous, bittersweet, and wonderfully eccentric, this is a delightful remembrance to be savored by those who love to travel or just dream of it.
"I love MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH ENGLAND. It is written clearly and with a understanding that far supasses any feeling of condescension or superiority or general quaintness among the natives, all of which I detect in books about other countries."
M.F.K. Fisher

Baker & Taylor
Writing a love letter to Great Britain, the America author celebrates badger-watching in the countryside, the London theatre, ghost-hunting, tour guiding students, and other pleasures of traveling through England. Reprint.

Wonderful book for remembering or planning trips to England.
Truly enjoyable.

I really enjoyed reading about all the sites she visited,where she slept and how good the accomodations were. Plus all the sharing with where and what they ate.
Makes me want to go back and visit again. My dad was stationed there when I was4-6 years old.

The only reason that I didn't rate this a full 5-stars is because I really didn't get a feel for the culture from her book as I did from another book ~ Blow Out The Moon.
