October 2020 Nostalgia Review Round Up {Stephanie’s Review}

The title of “Maid Mary Anne” confused me a bit. Mary Anne is struggling with the fact that she thinks she’s self-centered. She gets wrapped up in taking care of one older woman and starts letting other things slide. One time she cleaned the kitchen but the remainder of the time she basically just did a bunch of fetching and talking. The older woman was […]

September 2020 Nostalgia Reviews {Stephanie’s Review}

Oof. This one hits a lot differently in 2020. I very much doubt it would be published the same way today. Stacey has a big crush on her college aged math teacher.

Wandering around a well maintained […]

It did make my opinions of Richard even more divided. I mean I can understand not wanting to go into all of it but Mary Anne should have known the basics […]
