Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

lindajo528, January 25, 2011

A gentle old fashioned love story in a very modern context. Widowed Major Pettigrew comes from a distinguished old family in a small English town. He befriends another widow, Pakistani Mrs. Ali, who runs the local grocery. Major Pettigrew and Mrs. Ali are kindred spirits, but in their small English town, socials mores still rule the day. Told with wry humor and a light touch author Simonson deftly navigates through the seas of prejudice and delivers a smart story in which love truly does conquer all.
