Actress Cornelia Otis Skinner and journalist Emily Kimbrough offer a lighthearted, hilarious memoir of their European tour in the 1920s, when they were fresh out of college from Bryn Mawr. Some of the more amusing anecdotes involve a pair of rabbit-skin capes that begin shedding at the most inopportune moments and an episode in which the girls are stranded atop Notre Dame cathedral at midnight. And, of course, there's romance, in the form of handsome young doctor Tom Newhall and college Lothario Avery Moore.

Published in 1942, the book spent five weeks at the top of the New York Times best-seller list in the winter of 1943 and was made into a motion picture in 1944. Download and start listening now!

    " I read this book years ago, the first time, and loved it. It may have been after ready Betsy and the Great World, but I can't be sure of that. I've read it since, and I still love it. I think it was one of my grandmother's books we inherited when I was a kid. "
