‘ This story will appeal to those who still believe that an Englishman’ s home is his castle, and to those who have a soft spot for indomitable old women’ Daily Telegraph

The hardback edition of this book, published in 2009 under the title A Lifetime in the Building, saw its extraordinary story featured not only in the Daily Mail but also Hello magazine – and quickly sold out two printings. Now it is re-launched in paperback under a new title to highlight its appeal as the tale of an extraordinary, maverick woman and her even more remarkable achievement.
May Savidge lived in a half-timbered house in Hertfordshire. When the council served her with a compulsory purchase notice to make way for a roundabout, May decided she had to move – but so did the house. So she had the whole thing dismantled and shipped to the North Norfolk coast... and then spent the rest of her life rebuilding it, single-handed. Her fame spread around the world. Antiques Roadshow broadcast, unprecedentedly, two features about her house.
Now her niece, Christine Adams, who inherited May’ s house and completed it – at the cost of her own marriage - tells her aunt’ s life story from the voluminous diaries and letters she left behind.

Christine Adams now runs a Bed and Breakfast in May Savidge’ s old house in Norfolk. Michael McMahon is also the co-author of My Friend the Enemy (978 1 84513 316 0).

Review:

'A heartbreaking tale of love lost, stoical determination and a poignant secret.'



‘A story of stoicism, heartbreak, suffering and great loss, but in which the indomitable Miss Savidge's determination not to lose her most beloved possession shines brightly and her note-to-self to 'Write funny story of furniture in attic' is fulfilled.’
