"In the winter of 1982, long before she became the watercolor artist and author we know today, Susan Branch, 34-years-old and heartbroken from the sudden and unexpected end of her marriage in California, "ran away from home" to the Island of Martha's Vineyard hoping to gain perspective. It was meant to be temporary, a three-month time-out from the daily grind of being broken up and miserable, but within days of her arrival, alone and not quite in her right mind, Susan "accidentally" bought a tiny one-bedroom cottage in the woods - which is how she discovered she was moving 3,000 miles away from everyone and everything she had known and loved. Funny, observant, touching, and addictive (you are not going to want this book to end), based on the diaries she has kept all her life, Susan Branch relates her inspirational tale of lost love and self discovery, her search for roots, purpose, and destiny with laugh-out-loud honesty. A road map for overcoming loss, following your heart, and making dreams come true, charmingly hand-lettered and watercolored in Susan's inimitable style, there are diary excerpts, recipes, and hundreds of photographs."--Provided by Amazon.com.

Now known as a resort community and vacation destination, Martha's Vineyard was once a simple fishing and whaling community. From the popularity of the Methodist Campground, founded in 1835, the Vineyard soon blossomed into a summer vacation mecca, welcoming visitors to its quaint villages and scenic seashores. As whaling lost its economic dominance, tourism became the catalyst for a revived prosperity on the Vineyard. President Grant's visit to the Vineyard in 1874 drew national attention and marked the beginning of several presidential visits to the island. By 1900, Oak Bluffs had developed an amusement park atmosphere with the iconic Flying Horses, toboggan slide and grand seaside hotels. Join local historian Tom Dresser as he reveals the island's transformation into a premier tourist destination.

The story centers on Angela and Lutie, who have been married for over thirty years. Early in the book, I chronicle their upbringings; while Angela was sheltered and filled with the good things in life, thanks to her mother’s personality and desires, Lutie’s life was filled with hard work and the tragic deaths of his parents and an eventual brutal period of service in Korea. After the war, he puts himself through college and takes a banker’s job in the very bank run by Angela’s stepfather, and so they meet, fall in love, and marry. After the death of Angela’s mother, in the early eighties, the couple decide to accept the legacy she left of a fine home on the Island of Martha’s Vineyard, where much of Angela’s growing up took place, and substantial investments to guarantee a genteel lifestyle. The transition from their home of three decades in Pittsburgh to a life of leisure on the Island takes some getting used to, but they soon come to enjoy it. In fact, before long Angela has taken on the mantle left by her mother as hostess and renowned artist in the community. Meanwhile, the unexpected reappearance of a hated old combat soldier from Korea thrusts Lutie back into that time period and that mentality and begin to take its toll. This, combined with an unwelcomed population burst on the Island, starts to wear on his normally imperturbable psyche. Angela observes the changes in her husband, which is never more noticeable than the night he attacks and beats up a crowd of rowdy teenagers breaking glass and scattering trash on his favorite beach. The real trouble will not begin until he discovers his loathsome old comrade frozen and dead in the house of a friend, closed for the winter. A vision of a chainsaw passes through his head, and suddenly he has a plan to stem the tide of growth on his beloved Island. It isn’t long before the population is shocked and appalled to learn that a chainsaw-wielding maniac is wreaking havoc on the Island, chopping up human bodies and displaying their parts around the various towns. While the rest of the community is in a panic, Lutie grows increasingly agitated at what he has started; and when the investigation reveals the source of the bodies and the fear is assuaged, he decides to sink his remaining parts in the sea and get his life back to normal. It appears that he is in the clear, but is he? This book is skillfully crafted, highly suspenseful, and cleverly written, with an understatement that only serves to reinforce the plotline. It presents the troubling idea that people are not always what they appear, and it is a testament to the detrimental psychological effects of being in a brutal war zone. Given the high number of veterans experiencing this trauma in our current wars, the book has a high contemporary relevance. My wife, our two children, and I lived on the Island for over twenty years, and I have tried to distill the charm and grace, as well as the gritty underside, of this beloved piece of paradise. Book Review—silver-shingled cottages, salty boats and the captains who man them, patches of sand between glacial boulders, the crisscross of ferries and the mysterious realm of the rich. Such are among the evocations of Martha’s Vineyard. Author Tony Friedman and his wife Barbara washed ashore on the Vineyard in the early 1970s, spent nearly 30 years living and raising their children here, and now comes Tony’s first novel: Dead Season on Martha’s Vineyard. Tony’s keen sense of observation, deep knowledge of the Island’s history, and a lifetime of storytelling combine in Dead Season on Martha’s Vineyard to make a Writer finely constructed tale of the Tony interaction of several layers Friedman of Vineyard people, their lives and dreams, and the lengths to which each will go to keep the Island special. The dance of characters follows the clash and harmony of locals who make the Island function and the privileged who come for the “season.” With his finely tuned ear for authentic language and

Based on the diaries Susan has kept since she was in her 20s, The Fairy Tale Girl is book one of a two part series. Together the books are an illustrated memoir, charmingly designed in Susan's style with her whimsical watercolors and personal photographs. It's an enchanting story of love and loss, mystery and magic that begins in a geranium-colored house in California, and ends up, like any good fairy tale, on the right side of the rabbit hole, in a small cottage in the woods on the New England Island of Martha's Vineyard. The Fairy Tale Girl humorously explores Susan's journey as an artist and as a girl/woman, from the 1950s through the 1980s. In the first book of the series we get a revealing view of Susan's early life as the oldest of eight children and the marriage she imagined would be forever; it's filled with inspiration, romance and discovery, and a leap into the unknown.

A Fine Romance - Falling in Love with the English Countryside is travel writing at its best by New York Times best-selling author Susan Branch. This charming book is part love story, part travel guide - a hand-written and watercolored diary/journal of Branch's six-day transatlantic crossing on board the Queen Mary 2 and two-month ramble over the backroads of rural England. There are over three hundred photos, countless watercolor illustrations, wonderful quotes, recipes, a book list, a movie list, hand-drawn maps and much more. Travel with Susan as she makes her way around hedgerows and through wildflower meadows to visit the homes and gardens of her literary and artistic heroes, including Beatrix Potter and Jane Austen. It's a travel guide that will help you plan a trip of your own, lovely for the armchair traveler because Susan really does take you there, and perfect for all Downton Abbey anglophiles. When you are finished, go to Susan's website where there is an interactive Appendix to the book .... you can experience driving across the Dales with Susan's own videos and find links to everything she writes about, the cottages and gardens you will want to see yourself. A Fine Romance is book three of Susan Branch's autobiographical trilogy. First in order is The Fairy Tale Girl, followed by Martha's Vineyard - Isle of Dreams, and finally A Fine Romance - Falling in Love with the English Countryside. All three are hand-lettered, watercolored, filled with photos, recipes and quotes and, as Susan says, "as much magic as I could possibly stuff between the covers." Bon Voyage!
