This was a lovely read. One of those cup of tea at your elbow and just kick back and enjoy a good book with some lovely repartee.
This is a story set in England - equally about manners and manors, as it is about relationships - parents and kids, new lovers, old lovers.
There are some great one liners in this book, and Major Pettigrew is a great character himself. It was neat watching him fall in love again as a 67 year old with a Pakistani widow that unexpected steals his heart. It is a lovely tale. I wasn't so sure in the beginning, but the prose certainly won me over.
