Gulf Coast background for a quiet and charming story of two old ladies, living in the memories of past splendors in a forgotten part of town -- and rescued from oblivion by a woman seeking antiques. She brings life to them -- puts their little problems in a lawyers hands, and some of their property is salvaged. The most delightful part of the book is where they capture the picture of their vanished youth. Devout Catholics, true to traditions of gentility -- an authentic picture of a passing type. Good bet for your ultra-conservatives. Excellent for Catholic market.
