This book took me behind the scenes of the many homes not readily open and available for viewing, and gave a glimpse of those fortunate to have settled in Newport when large homes were available at great prices. The area at times has been in differing states of decline, but Newport at its core remains a gem to be discovered by those who stop, look and listen. This book did a wonderful job telling the stories of those who not only live in lovely homes and gardens but feel connected to the essence of Newport.
My personal favorites were all the beautiful gardens! Newport is America's Garden of Eden, as it creates a wonderful canvas for those who simply want to enjoy the natural setting that God created; or for those who desire to add their own flare to the beauty that surrounds them. In a way, the gardens tell me more about the owners than their houses.
Whenever I get homesick or the dread of winter sets in. I simply open this book and all the memories of that beautiful city flood back - and I smile.
