Spruce Corner Cottage Library

If I had my own library I’d call it the Spruce Corner Cottage Library. The name derives from the combination of an Alaskan tree, a desire to live in a cute British cottage, and the imaginary escape to somewhere like Pooh Corner. Here you’ll find the shelves stocked full of all the books that have inspired and returned with me from my travels. Welcome, browse away!
