Cottages and Bungalows – Design Recipe: Cottage by the Sea<< All Articles
We imagine the perfect spaces for author Debbie Macomber’s latest must read.
It’s no secret: to us, cottage living brings out the best in home and heart. And for Annie Marlow, the protagonist in New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber’s latest release Cottage by the Sea, picking up and moving into an old cottage her family often rented for the summer is part home healing and part heart healing.
Who couldn’t relate to the romance of starting fresh—in a sleepy coastal town no less? Annie moves there seeking solace and security after an unimaginable tragedy happens in the family (Macomber expertly puts the readers in the grip of both Annie’s survivor’s guilt but also her hopefulness) and discovers what many of us coastal cottage lovers already know—there’s magic in these special seaside homes that are bathed in coastal sun and filled with sea air. And there’s a special type of medicine in rolling up your sleeves and restoring an old home with some tender loving care, creativity and elbow grease!
