THERE ARE PERHAPS NO DAYS OF OUR CHILDHOOD WE LIVED SO FULLY AS THOSE WE SPENT WITH A FAVORITE BOOK. MARCEL PROUST
Review of The Last Bathing Beauty
July 15, 2020
This is a wonderfully written and heartfelt book. The story takes place over two time periods, 1950’s and present day. We meet Betty as she is working for the summer at her grandparent’s summer camp before heading to college in the fall. Along with Betty are her two best friends Georgia and Doris. Present day Betty is reminiscing with her friends and granddaughter about what her life could have been if things had worked out differently that fateful summer long ago. I loved these characters and I really enjoyed this book. The dual timeline worked well and I liked learning Betty’s life story.
