OUR MRS. MEIGS by Elizabeth Corbett


Email this review


Here- in one volume- are the three novels about the irrepressible eighty year old Mrs. Meigs, whose adventures and personality endeared her to readers in the '30's. With the woeful lack of such heart-warming novels today, this omnibus volume should find her a host of new admirers. Young Mrs. Meigs (she was pushing eighty in 1931), Nice Long Evening (losing her eyesight but still delighting in life in 1933), and Mrs. Meigs and Mr. Cunningham (playing a dexterous role of romance in 1936)- her story has now been merged into a continuous narrative. For this generation, it can be sold as new book, while those who remember her will get a nostalgic joy.
