Mrs Harris Goes to Paris & Mrs Harris Goes to New York
Mrs Harris Goes to Paris & Mrs Harris Goes to New York: The Adventures of Mrs Harris (The Bloomsbury Group) | Paul Gallico
6 posts | 3 read | 18 to read
Mrs Harris is a salt-of-the-earth London charlady who cheerfully cleans the houses of the rich. One day, when tidying Lady Dant's wardrobe, she comes across the most beautiful thing she has ever seen in her life - a Dior dress. In all the years of her drab and humble existence, she's never seen anything as magical as the dress before her and she's never wanted anything as much before. Determined to make her dream come true, Mrs Harris scrimps, saves and slaves away until one day, after three long, uncomplaining years, she finally has enough money to go to Paris. When she arrives at the House of Dior, Mrs Harris has little idea of how her life is about to be turned upside down and how many other lives she will transform forever. Always kind, always cheery and always winsome, the indomitable Mrs Harris takes Paris by storm and learns one of life's greatest lessons along the way. This treasure from the 1950s introduces the irrepressible Mrs Harris, part charlady, part fairy-godmother, whose adventures take her from her humble London roots to the heights of glamour.

Such an optimistic story, about an honest, hard working charwoman, dreaming of a Dior dress. A fairy tale almost! A sweet sweet story to read in an evening, that makes you cry and makes you smile and leaves you with a renewed faith in humanity. Nice!

Here are a few retro covers most of them books I've owned for a while. One (Mrs Harris) was published in 2010 but with a retro-esque cover

JenP @LeahBergen I didn't think it was amazing but it is a cute and light-hearted story and overall I enjoyed it. I think I have it 3.5 stars 3y
Suzze I read this whole series twenty years or so ago. Yes, very cute, fun read. I have yet to find a pink book. I have a pink CD set of Cream. 😜 3y
