Read about the Palo Alto community in 1959....This book has been reviewed as an enchanting and charming novel AND it takes place in Palo Alto, California.The author Paula Sirois Cornell has managed to illustrate the beauty of an innocent childhood growing up as a child with Howdy Doody, Sky King, S&H Green Stamps, Pea Shooter, Hula Hoops, marble collecitons and the clubhouse with secret oaths. For many it will bring back the memories of the 1950's in Palo Alto which Paula has captured with amazing accuracy. For those who were not fortunate to live in this era, you will have the privilege to enter the world of Beech Street and be transported back to the 50's. Paula has written a beautiful story that you will not be able to stop reading. It will come to life as if you were watching a movie.
