About this deal

Arris and her various catastrophes, but the constant carping on the Soviet Union, to the point that I'm not sure that this being a Cold War-era novel explains it. I was feeling in the mood for something silly and light, and Gallico’s series is entirely reliable for that.

He has lived all over the place, including England, Mexico, Lichtenstein and Monaco, and he lived in Antibes for the last years of his life.

Mrs Harris, with not too many points of reference, could only think of it as a combination of a bejewelled fairy city and an amusement park with only the rollercoaster and other thrill rides missing. Mrs Harris Goes To Moscow is the fourth and final in Gallico’s occasional series of books about the adventures of Mrs Ada Harris, a widowed London char woman. Lockwood about it, he asks her to bring a love letter to Liz, his Russian girlfriend, a tour guide for Intourist, the Russian travel service.

With a mink coat in mind for Mrs Butterfield, she also hopes to use their 'oliday to reignite a lost romance between her lovelorn employer and a Russian woman he had loved years ago. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. She's not dislikeable, but she is there to represent the author's idea of a type, not to be a fully fleshed out individual. So when she is asked to go to New York with one of her clients to keep house for her, she smuggles the lad with her to try to find his father. Harris is a bit of an adult version of Amelia Bedelia and I find the series charming, especially the Paris story.See the Golden Carriage in the Kremlin, the mummy of the great god Lenin and the relics of the Czar. She was genuinely moved by the sight, moved to murmer, ‘Cor blimey, but ain’t it beautiful,’ and felt suddenly glad that she had come. Butterfield are much the same, and that is part of the problem as we don't really see anything new to round out the characters any further.
