Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson

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

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Major Pettigrew is a widower who loves to do things the traditional way.  When he strikes up an unlikely friendship and eventual romance with Mrs. Ali, it is sure to stir things up a big in their small England village.  Between the local country club, the gossiping ladies, family traditions, and wearisome adult children, how can these two star-crossed lovers even think of being together? 

Loved this book and the characters.  Had some slower parts, but the overall storyline and some of the hilarious situations this poor retired Major has to go through are well worth the read.  The country club party scene is my absolute favorite, I laughed out loud several times.  Lots to talk about in this book, a great book club read or just to read on your own.
