Major Pettigrew's Last Stand (#6) by Helen Simonson

Lovely book! Major Pettigrew is a lonely 68 year old widower, set in his ways, in a small English village. He often visits a nearby shop owned by the delightful Mrs. Ali, a Pakistani widow who is in every way the Major's intellectual match, even though their association is viewed by the local community as very inappropriate. The book is filled with quirky characters especially the Major's son Roger and Mrs. Ali's nephew Abdool Wahid. This was a very enjoyable read. (
