Major Pettigrew's Last Stand - Helen Simonson

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

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved, loved, loved. Recommended by the owner of Sunriver Book Store because I mentioned how much I enjoyed Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Set in Sussex in the English countryside, it is the story of Major Pettigrew, a widower who has recently experienced the loss of his brother. He strikes up an acquaintance with the local Afghani shopkeeper, a widow who is 10 years his junior.

The author's turn of phrase is priceless. Must read!
