Item Details

A pair of endearingly eccentric bachelors - in their fifties, and fraternal twins - own and operate a bed & breakfast establishment where people like them, the gentle and bookish and ever so slightly confused, can feel at home. Hector and Virgil think of their B&B as a refuge, a retreat, a haven, where folks may bring their own books or peruse the brothers' own substantial library. Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast supplements each twin's distinctive and colorful description of life at their B&B with entertaining extracts from their guest book, lists of suggested reading materials (e.g., Books for When You Are Feeling Low), and astoundingly bad verse penned by a local poet. The lively cast includes Waffle the cat and the scripture-quoting parrot, Mrs. Rochester, as well as the ever-present warm memory of Mother.

Though this is fiction, there are legions of fans who so ~want~ to believe it's real. Charming, sweet, and SO hilarious. My mom has entire passages memorized and recites them to me when we need to get our hilarity on.
