    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    Overall

    As a 20 something American male I wondered how invested I would become with the protagonist being an elderly English war veteran, but I found myself absolutely engaged with the character. The wit and humor are excellent and the covert love story reveals that 60 or 16 we are all weak kneed and uneasy when it comes to love. Enjoyed the cultural nuances between English, Pakistani, and American characters, which provided some humorous and awkward events. An easy, light, and delightful listen. Accent and voices of the narrator were consistent and easy to understand.

    The dusty files of a venerable dictionary publisher, a hidden cache of coded clues, a story written by a phantom author, an unsolved murder in a gritty urban park: all collide memorably in Emily Arsenault's magnificent debut, at once a teasing literary puzzle, an ingenious suspense novel, and an exploration of definitions: of words, of who we are, and of the stories we choose to define us.

    Ed says: "Enjoyable Book with Great Characters"
    "A Great Listen! Humorous and easy to get in to."
