At Home: A Short History of Private Life by Bill Bryson

"Some time after we moved into a former Church of England rectory in a village of tranquil anonymity in Norfolk, in the easternmost part of England, I had occasion to go up into the attic to look for the source of a slow but mysterious drip."

And, Mr. Bryson found something in the attic he didn't suspect, which made him wonder about the house altogether.

Great beginning! This book is on my TBR stack but I haven't had a chance to start it yet. Happy reading!

I like Bill Bryson and this sounds like a very good beginning. I have never heard of this book, I have to check it out.
