Multcolib My Librarian Heather: Cinderella for grown ups

The Making of A Marchioness
The Making of A Marchioness By Burnett, Frances Hodgson (Book - 2009 ) FICTION BURNETT 2009 All copies in use. Availability details Holds: 2 on 2 copies

Annotation:In this Cinderella-like story set in late Victorian England, thirty-something Emily Fox-Seton lives alone, humbly and happily, in a tiny apartment and on a meager income. She is the one that everyone counts on but no one goes out of their way to accommodate. Then she meets Lord Walderhurst.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for A Day
Miss Pettigrew Lives for A Day By Watson, Winifred (Book - 2008 ) FICTION WATSON Available in some locations

Annotation:A charming Cinderella story that takes place in a day. Oh how much can change in that short time!

Mrs Harris Goes to Paris
Mrs Harris Goes to Paris And, Mrs Harris Goes to New York By Gallico, Paul (Book - 2010 ) FICTION GALLICO 2010 Available in some locations

Annotation:This treasure from the 1950s introduces the irrepressible Mrs Harris, part charlady, part fairy-godmother, whose adventures take her from her humble London roots to the heights of glamour.

The Enchanted April
The Enchanted April By Von Arnim, Elizabeth (Book - 2007 ) FICTION VONARNIM 2007 Available in some locations

Annotation:The four women at the center of The Enchanted April are alike only in their dissatisfaction with their everyday lives. They find each other--and the castle of their dreams--through a classified ad in a London newspaper one rainy February afternoon. The ladies expect a pleasant holiday, but they don't anticipate that the month they spend in Portofino will reintroduce them to their true natures and reacquaint them with joy.

Miss Buncle's Book
Miss Buncle's Book By Stevenson, D. E. (Book - 2012 ) FICTION STEVENSON 2012 All copies in use. Availability details Holds: 7 on 2 copies

Annotation:Barbara Bunde is in a bind. Times are harsh, and her bank account has seen better days. Maybe she could sell a novel ... if she knew any stories. Stumped for ideas, she draws inspiration from her fellow residents of a little English village she knows inside and out. To her surprise, the novel is a smash. It's a good thing she wrote under a pseudonym, because the folks of Silverstream are in an uproar.

Jane Austen
Jane Austen The Complete Novels By Austen, Jane (Book - 2006 ) FICTION AUSTEN Available in some locations Holds: 1 on 2 copies

Annotation:Nothing quite as predictably soothing for turbulent times as the novels of Jane Austen. Proving once again, there's nothing wrong with happy endings.
