Book Review: The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street by Helene Hanff

The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street

Book Description:

In 1970 Helene Hanff wrote 84, Charing Cross Road, a record of a postal love affair with England through a twenty-year correspondence with a London bookseller. The book found thousands of devoted readers. Their fervent wish--hers above all-- was that she go to England. Now at last in The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street that dream comes true.

My thoughts:
The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street by Helene Hanff continues the story of 84, Charing Cross Road. Helene is finally able to go to England to visit. She meets a wonderful assortment of people and is able to visit many places. Written in diary format, The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street is a gem of a book, full of  many humorous incidents, friendships, and a dream being fulfilled. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!

  1. I didn't realize there was a sequel to the Charing Cross book...which I really enjoyed. I will have to add this to my TBR list.
