Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale of all. ~ Hans Christian Andersen
Susan Branch, author of the Heart of the Home series of books, has written a true-life fairy tale, an illustrated memoir filled with her watercolors and hundreds of photographs. Based on the diaries Susan has kept since she was in her 20s, The Fairy Tale Girl (Spring Street Publishing, November 2015) reads like a novel and takes us back in time, from the 1950s through the 1980s.
It’s the inspirational and revealing story of surviving a broken heart and running away from home in California, “accidentally” buying a tiny one-bedroom cottage on Martha’s Vineyard and starting over from scratch. It’s a charming story of miracles and dreams come true; and an unconventional look at the times that were a ‘changin’…love, feminism, growing up, best friends, and rock and roll.
