Sunday evenings will become void as we miss the anticipated delight of immersing ourselves into their lives each Sunday night on PBS! Haven’t we all loved the family dynamics, the historical social change process, the setting, and the fashions of this bygone era? The friendship, loyalties, secrets, and realistic family issues have been the core of keeping us glued to this gripping dramatic series. Many have ordered the DVD’s of the entire 6 seasons and will no doubt revisit them again.

A TIMELY BOOK REVIEW
WHILE WE WERE WATCHING DOWNTON ABBEY
-A NOVEL -By Wendy Wax
With the end of the Downton Abbey Series, it seemed an appropriate time to introduce fans who will be missing the series, to a book that centers around the show. It is a light, humorous, tender read that encourages female friendship and bonding. As four very different women (in various stages of life), find themselves connecting through the weekly screenings of Downton Abbey, hosted by the concierge of their apartment building. The story becomes one of risk-taking, friendship-making, and supporting one’s friends through the dicier, unpleasant hurdles of life. You’ll enjoy the Downton Abbey connection, as it will probably encourage you to set up your own weekly screenings with girlfriends (and British refreshments), as well….
