“Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand” by Helen Simonson

Major Pettigrew lives a sedate life in the quiet English village of Edgecombe St. Mary. Despite being retired, he has a strict daily routine and holds dear the values of every English gentleman: honour, duty, decorum, and a properly brewed cup of tea. Then his brother’s death sparks an unlikely friendship with Mrs. Jasmina Ali, the Pakistani shopkeeper from the village.  Major Pettigrew and Mrs. Ali are drawn together by their shared love of literature and the loss of their spouses, and soon find their friendship blossoming into something more. But can the Major and Mrs. Ali find happiness despite the demands of the disapproving locals and a difficult family? This is a quietly delightful novel to lift the spirits!
