Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to read and review the book Summer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart, and I must admit I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Summer at Tiffany is a memoir about Marjorie Jacobson and her best friend, Marty Garrett set in New York, 1945. Coming from the University of Iowa hoping to find summer positions as shopgirls, they luckily find jobs as pages at Tiffany & Co. – becoming the first women ever to work on the sales floor! How amazing is that? Marjorie takes us back to the times when they experience celebrity visits (including Judy Garland!), pinched pennies for simple luxuries, and spend weekends going on romantic dates with midshipmen and exploring the city of New York – all with a certain charming simplicity. It's so intriguing to learn about the magic of Tiffany in it's early years, as well as such an important time in history, through the eyes of a young woman with so many opportunities ahead of her...
I highly recommend it for a fun and fascinating read, especially if you're a huge fan of Tiffany & Co. like myself. It just makes the company seem that much more special! But the book also reminded me of how important those little luxuries in life are and how easily we take things for granted nowadays... it was a great read!
