Review: Summer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart

Summer at TiffanySummer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A lovely, short memoir written by a woman who spent a wonderful summer in 1945 working at Tiffany's New York with her best friend. It nicely evokes the tenor of the times, the club scene, clothing, dating life, and the end of the war.

A fun, summer read, made better by the fact that it's a memoir and not fiction. My mother is approximately the same age as Marjorie and it helped me to understand what it was like for her during those times (although none of her summer jobs were as glamorous as Marjorie's!)

I loved this book and am glad Sheila picked it, because I probably would have never read it on my own!
