Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
This is a short book and I read it in about a day and it involves the written correspondence between Helene and Frank Doel. Helene lives in New York and contacts the shop that Frank works at in England searching for some books. What starts as a simple request soon because a friendship that spans many years. Helene rants and rages at times and at others is horribly funny. Frank starts off as a professional but soon finds that he can’t remain impartial when it comes to Helene and starts to join in her bantar.
I throughly enjoyed this little book and found that once I started it I couldn’t put it down. I have always loved letters (almost as much as postcards!) so it was really enjoyable to read the correspondece between Helene and Frank. I will now have to track down the further adventures of Helene, in The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street which details a trip(s?) of hers to England. Thanks so much doogie for finding this book at the book barn so that I could rip it from your hands and bring into my libary!
