The Cottage on the Lough

Ambrose's parents give Ambrose and Lottie a small cottage on the lough as a wedding gift. They spend hours there together, working on the cottage and building it into a retreat that they love. The cottage has a half-door and a sloping lawn. It is always subject to the weather. When Hannah lives there as an older woman, it's impossible to keep the entire house warm.
