Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson

Over a year ago one of my colleagues wrote a blurb about this book and I finally got around to reading it myself.  Why did I wait? 
I enjoyed the author’s use of language, especially her British-sounding wit from the lips and mind of her main character, the kindly Major Pettigrew.  Clashes in cultures, class and age all come to a boiling point in this small English town.  If you’re a fan of Jane Austen and Edith Wharton, you shouldn’t put off reading this one much longer.
