We should all have her grace and determination it wasnt so much about the dress as it were the idea of it that being said have her young friend wear and essentially trash the dior meant little or nothing to her for she got what she wanted in paris and that was to be recognized for the true lady she was.
i read this 50 years ago and remember enjoying the language and the fun.
There really isn't much to say about this book other than: delightful! What a lovely way to get away from the hubbub and drudgery of every day life, to remind oneself of one's blessings, to take heart in the human spirit, courage and generosity.
Yes, it's simplistic and cheesy and exaggerated. It's stereotypical and goofy and mushy. But isn't it great to simply escape? live out a dream? cheer on Mrs Harris and turn her into the most unlikely of heroines? doesn't she deserve it just like we wish we could all have that much stamina, faith and recognition? I think so.
This book will not change my life, but it slapped on a smile that's likely to come back every time I think of it.
