Our Hearts Were Young and Gay

Our Hearts Were Young and Gay
by Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kimbrough

Light, breezy and uncomplicated
Silly, and carefree

Emily and Cornelia head off to Europe for a girl's trip in the 1920's. These two naive young women contend with bed bugs,brothels, and measles.( And that's just the first third of the book!) I read where a friend called these two gals 'disaster-magnets'!!! What a great description. 

A travel memoir from the 1920's that is innocent and engaging.
I couldn't do a whole diet of this genre, but it was a yummy little appetizer full of remembered memories of two friends whose relationship only deepened over time. 

Look....I finished a book!!
