To Be Young Was Very Heaven (Hardcover IN CELL WRAPPED DUST JACKET-EX-LIBRARY BOOK) PUBLISHED BY HOUGHTON MIFFLIN-COPYRIGHT 1967-FIRST PRINTING by Marian Lawrence Peabody (Author), Various Photos (Photographer) BOOK REVIEW; wonderful diary by Marion To Be Young Was Very Heaven (Hardcover IN CELL WRAPPED DUST JACKET-EX-LIBRARY BOOK) PUBLISHED BY HOUGHTON MIFFLIN-COPYRIGHT 1967-FIRST PRINTING by Marian Lawrence Peabody (Author), Various Photos (Photographer) BOOK REVIEW; wonderful diary by Marion Peabody Lawrence, who vividly brings to life the world of high society in Boston 1880 or so to 1910. And I'd strongly suggest that my teenage reader follow up with Dodie Smith's I Conquer the Castle-which is almost too good to be true. It's a story of a young girl on the brink of womanhood in the 1930s-impecunious but well-educated & an aspiring writer-& it's too wonderful to believe.
