in Jenny's book are sure to win over other readers like they did the
judges of the American Title III contest, but this book wouldn’t be
half so enjoyable if the author didn't have a delightful sense of humor
and an eye for detailing the foibles of the modern woman and mother,"

Paramount Theater on 215 East Main Street in Charlottesville, VA, on
