Product description

Review

'As with the polished work of Alexander McCall Smith, there is never a dull moment but never a discordant note either ... Its main characters are especially well drawn, and Ms. Simonson makes them as admirable as they are entertaining. They are traditionally built, and that's not just Mr. McCall Smith's euphemism. It's about intelligence, heart, dignity and backbone. Major Pettigrew's Last Stand has them all' --New York Times

'It's gentle and charming, but these words can't convey the slow-burning pleasure of this novel' --The Times The Times

'I LOVED Major Pettigrew, such a quirky, lovely novel' --Sophie Dahl

With a hero whom generations will recognise and love, this novel brings balm to the heart' --Angela Huth

`In the noisy world of today it is a delight to find a novel that dares to assert itself quietly with the lovely rhythm of Helen Simonson's funny, comforting, and intelligent first novel - a modern day story of love which takes everyone, grown children, villagers, and the main participants, by surprise - as real love stories tend to do'
--Elizabeth Strout
