Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson

4 stars
R- 1-2

Started slow, and I was kind of bored, but in the long run, it was a sweet story.

Interesting characters, most of them obnoxious, but that's okay since they're supposed to be.  :)

Lots of quaint old manners, from Major Pettigrew, anyway.

This is one of those books that's compelling, even though not a whole lot happens.

In the end, I liked it more than I was expecting to, and even missed it after finishing.  I recommend it.

(Even if the cover kind of creeps me out....)  :D
