Part memoir and part style book, THE BEE COTTAGE STORY is an entertaining choice for a lazy afternoon. After experiencing a series of setbacks in her life, restoring a quaint older house proved to be therapeutic for author/owner Frances Schultz as she sought to heal and restore her own spirit. Readers join Schultz in her journey as she tackles each room and area inside and outside her home. While the average person cannot afford a “fixer-upper” in East Hampton nor furniture bought at auction from actress Katharine Hepburn’s estate, one can appreciate the beautiful photographs and Schultz’s engaging writing style while learning a few usable decorating tricks along the way.
