I quoted long below because I thought I might need to give you the context before I ask a quesiton.
It all began at the little church on Quaker Hill in upstate New York where I was invited to speak. What a coincidence that I ended up at this church, well off the beaten path. It turned out to be across the road from the country home of my hero, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, the prominent author of The Power of Positive Thinking....Then just days before my talk, Dr. peale died -- on Christmas Eve -- and was buried behind that little church....
In the above sentece, I don't understand what the wirter wants to say in the bolded part.
What is "the country home" here? ...Could it mean a tomb?
It would be great if you could paraphrase the point here.
Aha! I'm clear now.
Thank you for your help, BobK.
