When work takes Gilbert and her husband to New York they find a rustic cottage in the Catskill Mountains to call home. But rustic is a generous description for the state of the house, requiring a lot of blood, sweat, and tears for the newlyweds to make habitable. The pandemic further nudges Gilbert out of the spotlight and into the woods. She trades Botox treatments for DIY projects, power lunching for gardening and raising chickens, and soon her life is rediscovered anew in her own little house in the Catskills.
