Mrs Harris

Gallico's deceptively simple story, full of astute observations and humour, are just pure comfort reading. Mrs Harris with her indomitable courage, wonderful spirit and an incongruous desire for a Dior creation won my heart. I have lost two copies of this book through "loans" so far.

Is this the same Mrs Harris that Goes to Paris?

Read? I saw the movie... It stars Angela Lansbury and it makes me want to cry... well almost cry... well it is really more touching than tear-enducing.

lol...of course. Gallico's Love of Seven Dolls was also made into a movie (Lili) with Leslie Caron. I loved that book too but it has a bit more dark with the light!
