A Sense of Grace

A Sense of Grace

A gravel drive leads to The Oaks, a traditional antebellum mansion in Texas. Built in 1850 for steamboat captain Robert Hodge, the aging structure was sagging from the weight of five layers of roof when Carolyn discovered it. She could see beyond the tumble-down façade to the beauty it could be. Ignoring the peeling paint, she imagined gardens and porches and her children playing in the yard.


  1. I have a collection of Victoria magazine for over 10 years. I love every page of it. Rarely can I find it in Manila. My copies come from my sister in Houston or my daughters in New York and Hong Kong. A Victoria magazine is the best present I can get when they come home. In this lockdown, I enjoy every page of them. None ever looked outdated. They are timeless and priceless. Mabuhay! (Long live) from Manila, Philippines!
