Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand - Helen Simonson It has been a long while since I read a book so finely crafted that I enjoyed every sentence and the expert development of each character. The story centers around two cultures trying to coexist but remain separate in a small town in England. The two main characters from these separate culture find themselves drawn to each other and begin to challenge the carefully constructed separate worlds within the small town and that they have more in common with each other than they do with other people who share their heritage. I want to rush out and read everything written by this author, which I hope is a large body of work.
