Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found Maison Jennie to be what I call a cosy novel-an absorbing read that isn't too brain taxing.Jennie Straus is the daughter of a poor,immirant,Jewish shopkeeper who settled in New Orleans, and an overbearing,whining mother who is constantly nit-picking and finding fault with Jennie.After many family traumas,Jennie eventually becomes a successful shopkeeper,selling fashionable clothes to the more affluent matrons of New Orleans society.After her horrible mother literally wears her down on the subject of marriage, she gives in and marries the man of her mothers choice, Mannie, a brutish, uneducated peasant of a man by whom she has 2 children. Earlier, at the age of 16, she met Marc Goldman,the unattainable, educated son of a wealthy Jewish family, who was to be the love of her life.Julie Ellis weaves a fascinating tale of the intertwined lives of Jennie and her family and her eventual emergence as the owner of a chain of stores bearing her name and a highly respected figure in the world of high fashion.

Bought this book several years ago and have literally worn it out, reading it several times. Am ordering a newer one as I will keep on reading it when I need to read strictly for enjoyment and relaxation. Maybe this sounds a little hokey, but I actually feel very close to the Straus family. They are very real. The book is well researched by the author. I have spent a lot of time in New Orleans (my favorite vacation spot) and have been to Paris (only once.) I felt at home in all the places Ms. Ellis describes. "Maison Jennie" is second only to "Coming Home" (Rosamonde Pilcher) on my list of books that I must read once a year.
