Recently PH and I happened upon this place. You'd think the obvious. But if you look closely in those windows you'd see large vats filled with beer. We were looking for a restaurant at the moment and how could we possibly go wrong with a brewery/restaurant called The Library? It spoke to both of us for different reasons.
We walked in the front door and were greeted with a display of books (and beer cans,) walls filled with books, this fabric was also on the seat cushions and chairs, and I was in love. How could we go wrong?
But here I was, apparently in the Reader's Digest cemetary. I took one from the pile and put it on the table.
I had just heard about this book very recently. And here, in this Reader's Digest Condensed book in an obscure little restaurant 13 hours from home I find the story. I was quite frazzled as I tried and tried to remember where I had heard about this book. I asked the restaurant if I could purchase this book, thinking they would say yes to a book that can't even be given away. But I was told no, it was "part of the decor."
Now I was seriously perturbed. Obviously, the coincidence was strong. WHERE had I read about this book recently? Obviously it was something I needed to read because it crossed my path twice in a matter of days. There was a reason for this title being in my face now. It was written in the late 1950s so what's up? We went back to our hotel. I got my iPad and started searching Friend Laurie's blog because in a tiny fold in my brain I saw one of her posts and yes! There it was http://www.thisismysymphony.net/2016/05/mrs-browns-lbd-my-mrs-brown-review/
When we got home from our trip Friend Laurie brought the book to me. the real book, not Reader's Digest Condensed. I started it late this afternoon sitting on the porch enjoying the late afternoon sun, looking for the clue from Mrs. 'Arris.
