Our other new titles include the following Stocking Stuffers available by late spring. $7.95 each. 

French Recipes $7.95 compiled by Mary Lou Hattery. Photographs for the covers are ones taken by me while on a barge trip on the river Seine north to Normandy. May Lou and other friends and their husbands were on this fabulous trip with us. The cover view of the Eiffel tower at midnight was exciting and best taken from the middle of the river. We have the Eiffel tower with the Statue of Liberty replica inside the book. France gave the Liberty Statue to America.
