MAJOR PETTIGREW’S LAST STAND by Helen Simonson

Forced to deal with the realities of life in the 21st century when he falls in love with Pakistani widow Mrs. Ali, Major Pettigrew finds the relationship challenged by local prejudices that consider Mrs. Ali, a Cambridge native, as a perpetual foreigner. Delightfully witty and poignant, this is a “feel good” novel that you don’t want to miss.

I really enjoyed this one. Major Pettigrew's dry British wit was delightful. Underlying the humor, unfortunately, is the very real fact that prejudice is still alive today. This one will make you think!

Got a little bored early on, but this one ended up being rather compelling.
