Major Pettigrew's Last Stand...

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand made the perfect final book of the year. Hard-to-put-down, sweet and charming. I loved it.
I may write more, but I don't want to spoil anything. You read it, then we'll have a chat.
OK. I just have to post one of my favorite quotes from the book. .. to entice any of you who've missed this little gem.
"That's what love is about... It's when a woman drives all lucid thought from your head; when you are unable to contrive romantic stratagems, and the usual manipulations fail you; when all your carefully laid plans have no meaning and all you can do is stand mute in her presence. You hope she takes pity on you and drops a few words of kindness into the vacuum of your mind." pg. 298
