Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

I bought three books from Persephone Press – Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson, The Home-Maker by Dorothy Canfield Fisher and Family Roundabout by Richmal Crompton.

The service was fabulous and the books arrived within a week and they are beautiful! Each with a book mark that matches the end papers.

So far I have only read Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. I liked it. It definitely had that between the wars, elegant, sophisticated movie feel about it. In fact it would make a fabulous film – (there is a film being released in May in Australia). It’s quite dated, a bit like reading old romance novels, but it made me want to stay up late drinking gin and visiting late night cocktail bars. So all in all a fun, light read.
