What a delightful gem of books!  It was so fun to read about Mrs. Ada Harris' shenanigans and hijinks as she spreads her wisdom and optimism wherever she goes.   Determined to make her dream of owning a Dior gown come true, she proves that determination and hope are a combination that can't be beaten.  The Paris adventure was Mrs. Harris on her own where everything is foreign from her neighborhood and simple, happy life.  The New York adventure finds Mrs. Harris and her bestie Mrs. Butterfield are overwhelmed by the big shiny apple of a city.  In this story, Mrs. Harris is fairy godmother to everyone she encounters.  Another delightful story.

From the publisher:
Mrs Harris is a salt-of-the-earth London charlady who cheerfully cleans the houses of the rich. One day, when tidying Lady Dant's wardrobe, she comes across the most beautiful thing she has ever seen – a Dior dress. She's never seen anything as magical and she's never wanted anything as much.

Determined to make her dream come true, Mrs Harris scrimps, saves and slaves away until one day, she finally has enough money to go to Paris. Little does she know how her life is about to be transformed forever …

Mrs Harris's adventures take her from her humble Battersea roots to the heights of glamour in Paris and New York as she learns some of life's greatest lessons along the way.
