Genevieve Ferraro is the author of the Jewel Box® Home, the story of her life in a smaller house. Genevieve is shown here sitting on the front stoop of her house with Buddy, her Cavalier Spaniel. The Jewel Box® Home grew out of Genevieve's desire to celebrate the good things about smaller homes. Genevieve has lived in the same small house for over 25 years with her husband and two sons, in Chicago, Illinois.
