Product Overview

Savannah's little crooked houses reveal the secrets they have held for over two hundred years. In a warm, accessible style, Savannah writer Susan B. Johnson gives voice to the walls of the little antebellum cottages that dot the city's historic district and examines the lives of the families that called them home. Who built these tiny dwellings? Who lived in their twelve hundred (or fewer) square feet of space? And what sort of world did they see when they gazed out their windows? This charming, meticulously researched book answers all these questions?and more. Who can resist the story of Dr. Samuel Furman, who was married to sisters, first Lucy and then Henrietta Williams? Or the sad tale of Edward and Jane Harden, who both died of bilious fever in 1804?he on her birthday, she on his?leaving their children in the care of slaves? Or the mystery of lively and conniving Eliza Howell, whose three husbands all died under the same circumstances? If these walls could talk, the rooms would resonate with the passionate spirit of our ancestors.
