There's no place like home Celia Dunne may be an old spinster, but she's no fool. She knows that changing her will to leave the grand family estate, Dunnian, to her grand-nephew will ruffle feathers within the family. But Celia also knows that Dunnian has stood solemn and empty for far too long, and she intends for that to change after she's gone. Humphrey's children will turn the creaky old house back into a family home-just the way it was meant to be. As Humphrey's young family grows and expands within the walls of Dunnian, the house seems to welcome them with warmth and a wonderful feeling of belonging. Following the Dunnes through youthful antics, merry parties, heartbreaks, love, and marriages, Celia's House is an enchanting family novel that begs to be read and savored over and over again.

This was charming and sweet, but had more depth than I expected. Yes, there is some romance, but it isn't the main fixture of the book. It's more a side addition to the story of the house and family. I wish the author would have continued past where the book ended, but I suppose it's more fun to be able to finish the story the way you prefer. In addition, this could definitely be counted as a historical fiction novel. I quite enjoyed getting a look at what life would have been like before the war - and then during. Interesting to see how life changed and they changed with it. Very well written, a pleasure to read (though a bit fluffy,) and even (slightly) educational.

“If strangers see you behaving like lunatics, it doesn’t matter, because they don’t know who you are. And if your friends see you behaving like lunatics, it doesn’t matter, because they know who you are.” Celia's House - D. E. Stevenson
