The latest from Colorado author Eleanor Brown, author of the wonderful book, "The Weird Sisters".
"Imagine what she could have been if she had only let go and embraced who she was. Imagine what I could have been. Imagine what could happen if we all had the heart to be who we truly are."
Brown has written a lovely book exploring how Madeleine and her grandmother lived their lives, first blaming others for their constraints and failures, and then coming to terms with their choices. Lots to think about and discuss. And Paris!

Madeline in 1999 and Margie in the Jazz Ag 1920s are both women still finding themselves.

I'm such a sucker for reviews that say 'inspired by her grandmother's letters.' Author draws parallels between Grandmother Margie and her granddaughter, which are a stretch in more contemporary setting. I just wanted to shake both the characters. This was pretty close to chick lit, so disappointing.
