Major Pettigrew's Last Stand
Simonson, Helen
4 stars = Really Good

This was one of the best books I have read in a long time. I was immediately drawn into the characters and the emotions they were experiencing. I loved the fact that the Major went with his feelings even though everyone was against him. He didn't succumb to peer pressure or society expectations. The book is character driven and some people in my book group didn't like it because they felt it was too slow. But I thought it was just perfect! I do hope this is made into a movie.

Green, John
4 stars = Really Good

It was good. It didn't affect me as deeply as it did to others, but I did like it. The characters were interesting and the story was sad.
