Books and Houses

"...At the far end of the long, low room, through a glass door, he could see a small terrace with blue hills beyond. Comfortable, slightly shabby armchairs were arranged in front of a cut-stone fireplace that had been laid with vine clippings.  On the other side of the room, the wall had been knocked away to waist height to make a bar, with a gap at one end leading through to the kitchen.  Books were everywhere, books and flowers.  The air smelled faintly of lavender."
