This review is from: Flowers for Mrs.Harris (Paperback)
Mrs Harris (Ada 'Arris) is a London char who cherishes the dream of owning a Dior gown and decides to do just that. The story recounts her daily encounters with her various employers and how she succeeds in raising enough money to go to Paris and buy the dress of her dreams.
Once there she succeeds in endearing herself to everyone she meets and overcomes all obstacles to return triumphant with the gown. But on her return things don't work out quite as expected.
Apart from Gallico's inability to reproduce genuine-sounding Cockney speech (he is an American after all), this is a heart-warming story and perfect for a dull grey day, or whenever you want to read something cheering and uplifting.
A word of caution: this book has also been published under the title "Mrs Harris Goes to Paris" so be careful not to buy the same story twice!
