Major Pettigrew's Last Stand
Mrs Ali, a Pakistani lady from the market is a lady he admires and comes to know through their common love of literature. Although challenged by societal dictates, Major Pettigrew and Mrs. Ali discover that with each other there is hope that life still has much to offer. Through a series of challenges that each of them faces, we find out if they are able to maintain and develop their friendship.
This novel is a well-written, humorous story that will keep you turning the pages to find out what Major Pettigrew's last stand will be. This novel is a hoot and if you want to be entertained instead of confronted, this is a read for you.
I give it 4 stars out of 5.
