Memoir series of books on author's adventures with her family  
May 21, 2014
Author:  Rachel Levy Lesser
Category:  Non-fiction: Memoir
Description:  Rachel Levy Lesser, a journalist and PR specialist in Newtown, PA, has written a series of coming-of-age memoirs about the women in her family and their passionate interests. The firstbook, about shopping trips in Philadelphia and NYC, begins with a trip with her grandmother Madee for a consecration dress when Rachel is five years old. Rachel inherited the shopping gene from Madee, Aunt Jo and her mother. They shopped for many years and many reasons, just because, to be together, to find the perfect dress for some occasion or for fun. Then, when Rachel is in her early 20s, her mother is diagnosed with cancer. A spirited woman driven by a love of family, Rachel's mother lives a full and happy life for another six years and the shopping continues, through Rachel's grad school years in Michigan, her life in NYC at a dream job with Time-Life magazines and when she becomes engaged. Rachel buys her wedding dress at Vera Wang and later, clothes for a new baby and furniture when she and her husband buy a home outside of Philadelphia to be near her parents and family.

Follow-up books about Rachel's other adventures with family and friends are in the works.
