Book #40 Read in 2012
The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street
This book is the sequel to 84 Charing Cross Road, which I loved. This one was good but I did not enjoy it as much as the first. That being said, this was still a nice read. In this book, Helene has made it to London and sees places that she only dreamed of seeing. She connects with the wife and daughter of the man who was her correspondent for years. Helene is a star of sorts and she is overwhelmed with the gifts and fawning people give to her. She wonders how she will ever settle in back home to her ordinary life.
This book is told in journal format, which works to make readers feel so connected to Helene. It is a nice, quick read and brings closure to her story nicely. I enjoyed this book.
