Shopping for Love

There many lessons to be learned when you are Shopping for Love. Follow a daughter’s poignant tale of life lessons and take a glimpse of an uncertain future that somehow becomes brighter with every trip to the store in this touching memoir.

Shopping for Love tells the story of Levy Lesser’s life through vignettes of her shopping experiences with her grandmother, aunt, and mother over the course of twenty-five years. Shopping was a long-standing tradition in her family. In fact, it became a gift for her mother throughout her long battle with cancer, extending the quality and length of her mother’s life. Interwoven with wit and humor, this tale allows us to see through a daughter’s eyes and her understanding of life and its joys and sorrows.

Laid out in chronological order, each vignette reveals information about family members and imparts important lessons learned along the way. The Devil Wears Prada meets Tuesdays with Morrie in this heartfelt, humorous journey of a daughter coming to terms with her young mother’s mortality, the strength she found in the example her mother set, and the hope they discovered together in the ladies’ dressing room.
