This review is from: Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (Paperback)
This book is a fairy tale story of a woman who by accident discovers that all the things she has been told in her life are good and proper are also the things that have stopped her from really living.
Miss Pettigrew arrives at Delysia La Fosse's flat a timid larvae and over the course of the day becomes a beautiful butterfly as the acceptance and trust placed in her by Miss La Fosse and her friends allows Miss Pettigrew to be herself for the first time in her life.
This book is a truely wonderful read, it is full of warmth and delight, I read it in one sitting and will return to it any time I feel the need for a little magic in my life.
