Marion Marchetto Hi Kathleen,
Thank you for friending me. After reading your profile it seems we have a bit in common. I, too, attended Catholic school in the 50s where I became that 'good girl'. Weren't the fifties a terrific era? Your Sydney Lockhart Mysteries look interesting. Going to check them out. Cheers! - Marion
