Summer at Tiffany

Summer is drawing to a close.  But if you have time to fit in one more book of summer time reading, this is a great pick!

Do you remember the best summer of your life?

Grab this book & get ready for a great poolside read!

The setting is New York City, 1945.  A time of Gershwin, Glenn Miller, WWII, and white glove glamor all around. 

Marjorie and her best friend Marty are wholesome gals from Iowa, on a summer trip to the Big Apple.
They search for employment in all the big name department stores with no luck. The girls don't give up and they become pages at Tiffany & Co., the first women ever on the sales floor!

However the girls didn't travel all that way for just work!  There were plenty of fun adventures as they take in all that NYC has to offer.  Including nights primping with Kreml, Jergens and Max Factor before going out on the town with midshipmen.

Sip from a tall glass of lemonade, just like Marjorie and Marty did in chapter 7. 🙂

This charming story will have you creating Big Band playlists as you travel back in time to 1945.
