annapi | 5129 comments What a delightful book! Thank you to all who reviewed and recommended it here, because this would never have been on my radar otherwise. I only regret that it was so short! It's easy to see how this exchange of letters between a struggling playwright in New York and the London bookseller Marks & Co (particularly Mr. Frank Doel) became a bestseller, to the bemusement of ihe author. To be honest, I was only going to give it 4 stars until near the very end, which really touched my heart and elevated it for me. Now I need to find The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street just to see what happens next.

Sara (mootastic1) | 770 comments I didn't realize there was a follow-up book. I definitely need to look it up.

It's the story of when she finally makes it to London.
