For those of you in Atlanta who just want a chance to borrow the book for a while, six copies (total) are supposed to be available through our public library system. The four branches that currently have one copy are Alpharetta Branch, Roswell Regional, Sandy Springs Regional, and South Fulton Regional. Central Library has two copies. Good luck!
The Blessing by Nancy Mitford, 1951, another Paris Hotel Boutique offering, is my virtual gift to Mrs. Blandings. (This one is also at the Buckhead library.)
