Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney

lillian boxfish takes a walk

What a delightful read!  The year is 1984 and 85-year-old Lillian Boxfish loves to walk the streets of New York.  That is where she does her best thinking, and she has a love affair with the city.  It is New Years Eve as Lillian starts a 5 mile walk to a restaurant and she reminisces over her interesting life during the walk.  Lillian worked as an advertising copy writer for R. H. Macy and was the highest paid female during her time.  She has a gift with words and poetry and loves what she does. She has a lot of spunk and charm.  The book was inspired by a real life person, Margaret Fishback.  I found the book to be a charming, fun read.
