I'm a mom of 3 kids, and I love to read and watch movies, and I'm picky about what my kids read and watch.

BOOK: Major Pettigrew's Last Stand (Helen Simonson)

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand
by Helen Simonson

This is a delightful first novel from an advertising executive turned stay-at-home-mom-looking-for-a-creative-outlet turned novelist. Major Pettigrew is the ultimate traditional English gentlemen.... retired military, widowed with one adult son, living in a sleepy sea-side village.  His quiet life is turned upside when his younger brother dies and he becomes friends with the village shop-keeper.  It's a sweet and charming story that is also powerfully moving.  A great read and quite clean (3 uses of the s-word and one implied bedroom scene).
