|Fantastic book by Dolley Carlson|
A friend recommended this book because of the Boston Irish theme. When I saw the cover, I ordered it immediately from Amazon. Seeing a picture of a stylish woman walking by the Public Garden immediately reminded me of my mom, a lady who exuded both style and grace. The book had many Boston references, and transported me back to growing up in an Irish immigrant family in the Boston area. So many happy memories of our trips into the city, dressed in our finery with visits to Santa at the Enchanted Village, followed by lunch at Thompson's Spa. The book certainly made me nostalgic about the wonderful life I enjoyed growing up and my amazing parents.
