This is a memoir about the best summer of the author's life (1945) when she worked at Tiffany in New York City. She and her friend, Marty, journeyed from Iowa to NYC together to spend a fabulous summer there.
I read a review for this by Jennifer at Justice Jennifer Reads and decided I needed to read this too. What could be more fun than to revel in the shared love for the best city ever? Then when I was browsing the local bookstore one night I was trying to remember the name of the author; I randomly looked up from the books I was looking at and saw this book sitting on a special end cap display! I kid you not, it was literally when I was already thinking about it. I really can't think of a whole lot to say about this book except that I really enjoyed it. It was a fast read (I read it in less than a day) and read like fiction. The author did a great job of putting the reader in 1940's New York along with her and her friends as they fell in love (with the city and with men). Marjorie Hart had an experience that every young woman dreams of having and now has fabulous stories to tell her grandchildren about. And she has personal experience working in the best jewelry store ever! A delightful, engaging read!
And I just wanted to point out the cover. That's an actual picture of Tiffany in NYC during the 1940's. Love it!
