A friend wondered if we might suggest some light and happy books to read, she thought it would be a help. Some of our faves.....
Set in the idyllic seaside village of East Sussex, England in the summer of 1914, Helen Simonson's book will transport you to a simpler time, an age of innocence. The Washington Post called it "a novel to cure your Downton Abbey withdrawal." --Jenny
A quirky, slyly smart novel set in an Australian department in the 1950s. It's light and bright and innocent: a balm for these anxious, confusing days. --Becky
For a certain category of youngish moms. --Amy
For a certain category of not-youngish moms. --Amy
Irreverent AND thoughtful.
It's a rom-com, but it's fun and funny and well-written. --Jenny
