Mrs. ‘Arris Goes to Paris — Paul Gallico

arris  Mrs. ‘Arris Goes to Paris is possibly the sweetest book I have read in the last couple of years.  I absolutely adored it.

Mrs. Harris is a char woman in London and gets it into her head that she wants a Dior dress after seeing one in the closet of one of the homes she cleans.  She scrimps and saves her money so she can be able to buy it.  When she finally does get the money she flies to Paris and the House of Dior.  It is here where the real story starts.

The people she comes in contact with and how their lives change because of her is amazing and made me happy to be reading such a loving story.

Mrs. ‘Arris is a sweet old lady and I think that if I ever met her (and I probably do know a couple of old ladies who are like her in many ways) we would be good friends.  Anyone looking for something to bring up their day or for something short and sweet this book is definitely for you.
