Hart has a genuine gift for conveying the texture of midcentury Manhattan. [She makes] the dilemmas of her own young life both compelling and contemporary. USA Today [A] glorious once upon a time fairytale come true.I loved every moment!

The Cleveland Plain Dealer raves, Hart writes about that stylish summer with verve, recollecting with a touching purity a magical summer in Manhattan, seen through the eyes of two 21-year-olds, just as the end of World War II approached.

Magical! The best word to describe this story of two University of Iowa girls living and working in NY in the summer of 1945.

It was full of moments big and small - the first women to work on the floor of Tiffany, the WWII Pacific surrender, eating at the Automat (oh, how I wish I could have eaten there!), going on dates with midshipmen, seeing the ocean for the first time... Every minute was wonderful, I loved it!

Now on to home!

After my thoroughly enjoyable #BackpackEurope excursion, I flew back to the U.S. of A. for one last stop before heading home - spending a little time in NYC.

What better way to close out my summer trip than hearing Marjorie Hart retell the story of her amazing summer in that fabulous city in 1945. 😍❤️

This book was sweet and charming, all about the summer in 1945 that two Iowa coeds got to live in New York for the summer and work at Tiffany. If you're not into gee-whiz innocent nostalgia, you won't be into this book. If you're into slice of life memoirs, you might enjoy it. Firsthand account of being a young woman at the end of WWII, living independently for the first time, and having lots of wholesome fun with her sorority sisters.

rubyslippersreads I just finished this—fun and nostalgic. 😊 2y

#Day11 #septemberphotochallenge From Tiffany blue to indigo and everything in between... so many #shadesofblue on my shelves and I didn't even touch my cookbooks. Old favorites and some from my TBR piles--I could keep going with blues, but every book that comes down, has to be put back. I found my funny little blue & white lady in an antique store in Seattle, years ago. She's made in Hungary & makes me smile. #somethingforsept #blue 📘💙📘

BarbaraTheBibliophage I love that blue and white lady! 3y
Bette The blue and white lady is so unique! 😊 3y

bananasbooks Random question, but how did you get the tags to have the little symbol in front of it? I can only seem to tag people and have the @ sign in front. Help! 3y
DebinHawaii @Zelma For sure! 😱 @PurpleyPumpkin Thank you! 😀 3y
DebinHawaii @bananasbooks To the right of the 'Add Image' is a button for 'Tag People' and you can look them up & tag them there. I think that is what you are asking about but let me know if that didn't answer it! 😀👍 3y
bananasbooks @DebinHawaii Oh, well that makes much more sense!! Thank you so much!!!! 3y
DebinHawaii @bananasbooks My pleasure! You can also go back in via edit and add them to your already posted photos if you ever want to tag them too. 😀👍 3y
SaraFair You are going to enjoy "Summer at Tiffany"! 3y

One of the sweetest books I have read in a long time. Nonfiction accounting of one of the first women to work on the floor at Tiffany New York City. Also what it was like to be in college in the 1940's-a very different time.

julieloverofbooks This was one of my faves! Always on the lookout for sweet memoirs like this! 4y
