K. Rowling had any influence on Bloomsbury’s decision to re-publish Paul Gallico’s ‘Mrs Harris’ series. Harris is one of those characters you just don't forget, and despite the book coming out many decades ago, it transcends the years. My daughter and I loved the film and I usually enjoy the original book version of the story even more.It’s of its time , maybe a little old fashioned attitude that wards women and class BUT it was an easy read , delightful, uplifting and great characters in a lovely imaginative plot.
